ICYMI: Building the Base Interviews Congressman Michael John Gallagher, U.S. Representative for Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District
In this week’s episode of Building the Base, our own Hondo Geurts and Lauren Bedula talk with Michael Gallagher, U.S. Representative for Wisconsin’s 8th District.
Congressman Gallagher touches on the role of increased automation in cutting edge technology, investing in the workforce, and the Pentagon’s procurement efforts. He highlighted the importance of collaboration between DoD and the Hill, especially enhancing our domestic infrastructure and abandoning our dysfunctional budget cycle.
This Veterans Day we hope you will consider supporting a veteran’s charity of your choice. If you are not familiar with an organization that does good work in the veteran’s space, we have provided the following links to national organizations that we know are meeting the needs of those with the physical and psychological wounds of war, families of the fallen, those transitioning from service to civilian life, as well as an organization that works in advocacy to advance legislative efforts to support the veteran community.
