FROM WASHINGTON:

News for the Enlisted  Monday Sept. 22, 2014

 

Well they left town again. TREA’s Washington staff returned from our National Convention in Norfolk Virginia this week and Congress recesses at the end of the week. (We are not taking it personally.) But as you well know there were several items they dealt with that are certainly important to the military family. First, a Continuing Resolution (CR) was passed and sent on to the President for his signature. (please see article below) Then both the House and the Senate with bi-partisan votes passed a bill that approves the payment for the President’s Syria plan. The President of Ukraine came to speak to both Houses of Congress and the President. He asked for more military help including lethal weapons. (Congress seemed inclined to agree while President Obama still disagrees.) Then the President announced a plan for the U.S. military to deal with the Ebola outbreak in Africa.  So it is clear when a big job needs to be done our government looks to our military.
