TURNER Reacts to Pentagon Memo

September 5, 2016

Congressman Turner, Chairman of the Tactical Air and Land Forces Subcommittee of the House Armed Services Committee, issued the following statement in response to the release of an internal Department of Defense memo obtained by Politico:

“This memo is proof that the Obama Administration continues to play political games when it comes to our national defense. While the Administration expends its efforts on making our national security a partisan issue, the safety and resources of our men and women in uniform hang in the balance. We will continue to work in a bipartisan manner to pass the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017, and ensure our military servicemen and women are provided the resources and equipment they need to keep this country safe.”
