Democrat U.S. Senator Kay Hagan visited Marines in the east Tuesday talking about what they do to keep us all safe.
Hagan made stops at Camp Lejeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River.
Senator Hagan met with MCAS New River Commanding Officer Colonel Jeffery Hewlett. She was also able to sit down with military leaders and discuss her role as chair of the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats. Hagan says, "Tying to figure out how we can prevent the IED's from exploding, looking at nuclear proliferation, looking at weapons of mass destruction, chemical weapons and a lot of what we actually talked about today is how to combat these emerging threats throughout Marines and our other branches."
Senator Hagan says they also talked about the wounded warrior program and how important it is to the Marines and their families.
