Congressman Neal Dunn

Representing the 2nd District of Florida

National Defense

I believe a strong, well-funded military is essential to ensuring the safety of all Americans and promoting freedom throughout the world. We must ensure our brave troopers have all resources they need to execute their missions. I am dedicated to working with my colleagues in Congress to ensure that we develop a comprehensive military strategy that can defeat ISIS and Islamic terrorism abroad and at home.
