I am writing in support of Congressman Steve Stivers’ leadership. I served in the U.S. military for more than 30 years, including a combat tour in Vietnam. I earned certification as an "area specialist" in Soviet and East European issues and a master’s degree in government from the University of Notre Dame. 

As we experience uncertainty regarding our international standing, and question our national security, we must be particularly alarmed by Russia’s growing negative influence. Having worked side-by-side with Stivers on a number of issues, I know we have a superb congressman who is well-versed in national security issues. He has earned the rank of brigadier general in the Ohio Army National Guard and a degree from the Army War College.

 This solid foundation, matched with his demonstrated intellect and temperament, is of profound value to us — especially as we witness the work of an independent prosecutor as well as investigations being undertaken by Congress of issues affecting our national leadership. I stand with Stivers and his colleagues as they follow the right path in these investigations.
