Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today released the following statement on the Administration’s announcement of a new military strategic guidance for the United States:
“It’s my hope that the Administration’s new strategic guidance will enhance our focus on modern and immediate threats to our national security – like terrorism and cyber warfare – while maintaining the strongest, smartest and best-equipped military in the world.
“As Congress works with the Administration to make strategic decisions about our future defense needs, we must also maintain the quality of our all-volunteer force, ensure that our troops receive the full support they deserve and work to preserve the critical role Colorado’s military installations and businesses play in our national defense.
“Existing plans to station a new Combat Aviation Brigade at Fort Carson are consistent with those goals and should move forward without delay.”
