Strength and Focus: The Future of U.S. National Security

~ A Protect America Month Program ~

It is difficult to point to any part of the world where the United States is better prepared to protect its interests than it was four years ago. Strong words and promises mean little if they are not supported by the ability to act. What does that mean for U.S. foreign policy? It means having a military that can prevent and deter aggressive nations which threaten U.S. interests. Furthermore, an effective foreign policy requires leadership that must go deeper than empty rhetoric while we retreat from a leadership role on the world stage.

Join us as we focus on these important issues and discuss how the preservation of peace and liberty requires a sustained and vigorous U.S. national foreign policy.
