About this collection

Throughout his entire Senate career, Senator Helms remained an outspoken and loyal supporter of the United States military. He enlisted in the Navy during WWII and served as a recruiter until the end of the war. As a Senator, Helms was a loyal advocate for the Defense Deparment and the military and recognized how important the military was to the people of North Carolina. Helms was outspoken in his support for the seventeen military facilities in North Carolina, including Fort Bragg, Camp Lejeune and Seymore Johnson Air Force Base and strongly believed that the best way to prevent war was by having a strong national defense. He frequently toured military posts throughout the state and country and was honored and proud of all the sacrifices made by the men and women in the armed forces.
