By Cole Driver on February 19, 2020.

Despite his campaign charge to ā€œMake North Carolina the Nationā€™s No.1 Military-Friendly State,ā€ gubernatorial candidate Dan Forest is remaining silent amid the Pentagonā€™s recent announcement that it intends to slash $223 million from the Marine Corps F-35 program to bankroll the presidentā€™s wall at the Southern border.
