Bill Russell's life has been dedicated to keeping America safe. He believes true national security rests with engaged citizens, responsible elected leaders and a robust military. Bill supports the Reagan Doctrine of "Peace through Strength," believing America should always remain alert and vigilant.As a 9-11 Pentagon survivor and Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran, Bill understands the sacred obligation civilian leaders owe to military personnel and their families. He'll always honor their service and sacrifice.
Beyond a strong defense, Bill believes our national security policies must include an aggressive plan for energy independence, and the confrontation of radical, violent jihad.
Here's where Bill stands on key national security issues:
Supports the ongoing winning of the War on Terror and radical jihad.
Supports tough border enforcement measures, and the prosecution of employers who hire illegal immigrants. Supports energy independence through expanded domestic oil exploration and production, and the development of alternative energy sources.

Supports ensuring that our troops have the equipment and support they need to do the job they are ordered to do. Supports full funding for veteran's benefits and continued reform and improvement of military hospitals. Supports making English the official language of the United States.
