As a Marine, Pat Roberts understands the importance of ensuring the safety of troops who are in harm’s way, taking care of their loved ones back home, and providing the benefits and support promised to each selfless service member. In Kansas, his tough and visionary leadership brought the Big Red One back to Ft. Riley, built the nation’s tanker super base at McConnell Air Force Base, and has ensured the highest quality facilities at installations throughout the state. militaryFor our veterans and their families, he has supported benefits such as TRICARE and the GI Bill. And as our troop deployments draw down, Pat Roberts understands the importance of programs that help ease war fighter transition to civilian life.
