Pat McCrory on Homeland Security

 


Establish state Department of Military and Veterans Affairs

At a time when so many servicemen and women are coming home from Afghanistan and Iraq through North Carolina, we must have an efficient and well-coordinated process in place to meet the needs of active duty personnel and veterans. These services are scattered across many areas of state government with no accountability, causing delay, frustration, and poor customer service.

We are going to do more to strengthen our Veteran Affairs and the Office of my Military Advisor. I am proposing the creation of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. This department will be responsible for, protecting and fighting our military bases, promoting the health and safety of our veterans and military families, helping our veterans get jobs, and working with the unique needs of base communities.

For our heroes, retain troop bases & defense manufacturing

I want to thank our men and women in uniform that have honored our country with their presence, and their service. They deserve it.

For these heroes, we are finalizing a plan that focuses on first, the retention of the bases and our troops here in North Carolina; Growing our military supplier base; three, retaining our highly skilled; and four, growing the defense manufacturing sector. We have incredible opportunity to follow through on those four objectives.

And speaking of the military, I've always said I'm kind of and Eisenhower Republican. I believe that government's main roles is to provide the infrastructure for job creation and economic growth. This is one of the great things that Dwight Eisenhower did as president. He worked to connect the urban with the rural and the East with the West. We need to keep focused on continuing that type of visionary thinking right here in North Carolina using our infrastructure.
