WASHINGTON, D.C. – Veterans in a bipartisan congressional caucus said their shared military experience and dedication to serving the country has helped them overcome political differences and work together on national security issues.
“We’re used to being a part of something bigger than ourselves,” Rep. Jared Golden, a Maine Democrat, told Fox News. “That shared respect that we have for what we did when we were in uniform makes it a lot easier for us to keep working together.”

The For Country Caucus is a bipartisan collection of 25 military veterans comprised of 11 Democrats and 14 Republicans. The group focus on issues important to national security, such as keeping the government’s cybersecurity prowess up to speed and ensuring that the U.S. can compete with China.
