News from Representative Tom Emmer


Dear Friend,

Each year I have the distinct honor of assisting individuals wishing to attend one of our nation’s service academies through the nomination process. I have an enormous amount of respect for those who wish to serve their country.

Jacquie and I are incredibly proud of our son Joey who is currently serving in the U.S. Navy. We are in admiration of his dedication to his country. The families of those who serve are also making sacrifices to support their loved one. Whether it’s a spouse, a child, a sibling, or a parent – these Americans play a vital role in the lives of our troops.

I am proud to see the work Congress has done to support military members, and their families. We have kept the brave men and women who selflessly serve our country our main-focus, and have recommitted our efforts to ensuring veterans receive the care they deserve. 

This week, President Trump signed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2018. This year’s NDAA is the earliest completed in 41 years. 

The National Defense Authorization Act of 2018 will: 

  • Provide a 2.4% pay raise to our troops.
  • Reinvest in the tools and equipment needed to properly and safely train our military.
  • Improve our missile defense capabilities, upgrade combat vehicles, and ensure our military has the resources it needs to be effective.

Congress is giving a long overdue “thank you” to our nation’s heroes. Their service protects our families, and they deserve our support.
