Reflecting on Israel in Light of Veterans Day

This Veteran’s Day, I’ve been reflecting on the sacrifices of those veterans that have come before my generation of military leaders.  I can’t help but think about the similarities between American veterans who fought for freedom throughout our country’s history and the Israelis who are fighting to defend their country now.  

Because I know you care about these issues, I wanted to share with you an opinion piece I recently published in the Times of Israel

I believe we honor the memory of America’s veterans by standing strongly by our Israeli allies in the same fight for freedom: 

  • We must ensure not one more dollar can be used by Iran, Hamas, or anybody else to fund terrorism.  
  • We must ensure that Israel has the ability to defend herself by sending immediate diplomatic, intelligence, and military support.  
  • We must ensure the world knows: an attack on Israel is an attack on American democracy. 

I believe American veterans stand strongly with these soldiers in Israel now because we share the common values our country and their country were founded on: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. An attack on Israel by radical terrorists is an attack not just on one country but on all the values that Americans have fought to defend since the founding days of our nation.
