TURNER & GIBSON: STOP Obama’s Land Forces Draw Down
Turner and Gibson introduced Protecting Our Security Through Utilizing Right-Sized End-Strength (POSTURE) Act of 2016
“We maintain the Peace through Strength; weakness only invites aggression.” – President Ronald Reagan, March 23, 1983
Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee’s Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces and Congressman Chris Gibson (NY-19) released the following statement after introducing the Protecting Our Security Through Utilizing Right-Sized End-Strength (POSTURE) Act of 2016.
“It remains evident that the Administration continues to jeopardize both our military and our national security, and by doing so, the peace that President Reagan spoke of is virtually extinct.”
These concerns have been reinforced by recent briefings from the U.S. Army and yesterday’s hearing chaired by Congressman Turner on the findings of the National Commission on the Future of the Army. In response to yesterday’s findings, Congressman Turner and Congressman Gibson have introduced Protecting Our Security Through Utilizing Right-Sized End-Strength (POSTURE) Act of 2016
“This bill ensures that our Land Forces will not be depleted as a result of the Administration’s flawed assumptions about the current security environment. Our military’s ability to meet new and complex global demands is essential to our national security and a continued force drawdown would be catastrophic.”
