"We do not take lightly the responsibility we have assumed in supporting our national security. Our armed forces – soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines – have the courage to show up, to leave their families for something bigger than themselves. What they do is critical to the defense of our nation, the safety of our families, and the preservation of our very way of life. It is a privilege and honor to support them to advance the missions of the institutions that guarantee our freedom and we must ensure that we always provide them with trusted solutions."
