President Trump has signed a bill that will boost Barksdale, Fort Polk and Belle Chasse in Louisiana as well as give America's military families pay raises.

The National Defense Authorization Act will give Barksdale's B-52s a modern makeover, protect Fort Polk from the base closure list and and keep Belle Chasse's F-15 fighters on guard for the Gulf Coast.

Congressman Ralph Abraham, R-Alto, the state's only member of the House Armed Services Committee, has called the act "a home run for Louisiana."
