Quote of the Day

"Members of Congress — Democrats and Republicans alike — sit with a burden few even recognize. They are poised to preside over the dismantling of our military that will reshape the future of our nation. The complicated and intricate risks from these defense cuts might not be fodder for political speeches. They will not be chanted at rallies or scrawled on poster boards. But deep, looming defense cuts have the potency to reconfigure a nation of today into what is unrecognizable to those coming of age 10 and 20 years from now. Members of Congress would be wise to weigh carefully the risks of additional cuts to our national security."

Congressman Randy Forbes
Chairman of the House Armed Services Readiness subcommittee
