Join FRC and Dr. John Fleming, U.S. Representative for Louisiana's Fourth Congressional District, for a discussion of challenges to religious expression in the military and ongoing legislative responses. Dr. Fleming will give an overview of current restrictions on religious liberty in the military, outline steps Congress has taken to protect service members' rights, and discuss ongoing legislative oversight. Dr. Fleming spent six years in the U.S. Navy as a Medical Officer before starting his own medical practice in Louisiana. He serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the House Natural Resources Committee. He has served in Congress since 2008.
Dr. Fleming was the Louisiana Family Doctor of the Year in 2007. He has worked in Congress for sensible health care reforms, and authored legislation urging all Members of Congress to participate in the same health care system that they create for the American people. He serves as Vice Chairman of the GOP Doctors Caucus, a group that includes 14 physicians who work to develop patient-centered health care reforms. Dr. Fleming has also championed conscience protections for medical personnel who choose to not participate in abortion practices.
John Fleming's primary goals are to uphold the U.S. Constitution and to be a servant leader to the people he represents. He's been named a "Defender of Liberty" by the American Conservative Union, a "Congressional Sentinel" by Heritage Action for America, and a "Guardian of Small Business" by the National Federation of Independent Business.
