Yakym Votes to Support a Strong National Defense

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Rudy Yakym (IN-02) released the following statement after voting for the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2025:

“Right now, the world is more volatile and the threats to our homeland more varied than at any point in recent memory. Only a strong and robust national defense can deter threats from materializing and keep America and our allies safe.

“This NDAA makes good on that imperative by giving junior enlisted servicemembers a needed pay raise, restoring American deterrence vis-à-vis Communist China, and expanding security resources for Israel and our own southern border; a border that under this president is wide open and has become a national security nightmare.”

“Additionally and critically, this legislation also eliminates divisive DEI mandates so we get politics out of the military and ensure our fighting force is laser-focused on lethality and winning kinetic wars, not left-wing culture wars. I urge my Senate colleagues to take this NDAA up in its present form so it can be quickly signed into law.”
