  • Senator Lee discusses European military spending with senior military officials

    Today in the Senate Armed Services Committee, Senator Lee discussed European military spending priorities with General Philip Breedlove, the Commander of United States European Command. The United States today continues to carry a disproportionate share of all NATO military spending, and President Obama is seeking to quadruple the amount of funding that our military is spending to assist European countries in defending against Russia. While Senator Lee believes it is important to deter Russia’s aggressive behavior from threatening our security interests, our European allies must move quickly to prioritize their own defenses over expensive domestic social programs, and the United States should make it clear that we will not continue to provide protection while they only focus on their own...

Vladimir Putin's Russia deploys numerous missiles and anti-missile systems in Syria and warns the United States of Donald Trump and the international coalition and NATO that it will respond to any attack against the Syrian army. A senior Russian military command states that US warplanes often "skid" the sky boundaries of the Russian air base in Syria. During their operations in Syria, US-led coalition fighters "EIIL" have repeatedly approached the restricted area that is the Hmeymim air base, located in the Syrian coastal city of Latakia, said the deputy commander Of the Russian Aerospace Forces, Viktor Gumeni. However, aircraft leave the area immediately after seeing in their sensors that the radars of the S-400 and S-300 air defense systems monitor their maneuvers, he said in a statement on Thursday to the Russian television channel Zvezda. According to the agreements in force in Damascus, the Russian militias guard an area of about 60 kilometers around the Russian aerodrome, while the radars and missiles of the system have a range of up to 400 kilometers. These missiles, along with the Pántsir-S1 anti-aircraft artillery systems, constitute the "shield" of the Hymenim base, where the Russian air force is deployed in Syria. Video shows how Russian S-400 will shoot down US fighters in Syria - A propaganda video shows the demolition of US and UK warplanes in Syria by missiles launched by a Russian S-400. The Russian Defense Ministry last week unveiled the defenses of Russian Hmeymim facilities for the first time. According to the report, the aerodrome is sheltered by a total of four lines of defense. At the end of September 2015, Russia began a military campaign against terrorist groups such as EIIL (Daesh, Arabic) in Syria, at the request of Damascus. Currently, both the aforementioned air base and the military port of Tartus, also on the Latakia coast, serve as permanent bases for Russian troops deployed in the area. The Russian Ministry of Defense has warned against using multiple rocket launchers HIMARS USA Against the Syrian Army. And warned of a possible Mumdial conflict and Third World War. "USA. Has moved two HIMARS multiple rocket launchers from Jordan to a base of US special operations forces near the Syrian town of Al-Tanf in south-eastern Syria, "the Portfolio said Thursday. On Wednesday, US military sources quoted by CNN reported that Washington had installed southern Syria's HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System) systems in southern Syria to boost its military operations. The Russian Ministry has recalled recent US air strikes against Syrian army positions and then stressed that "it is not difficult to assume that such attacks will continue, but already with the use of lightweight multiple rocket launchers." He has also emphasized that the deployment of any kind of foreign weapons in the Syrian soil, even more so if they are missile systems, must be agreed with the government of the sovereign country, according to the official Russian agency TASS.

a large US navy formation. The United States Navy (USN) is the naval warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven uniformed services of the United States. It was estimated to be larger than the next 13 largest navies combined in terms of battle fleet tonnage in 2009.[5][6] The U.S. Navy also has the world's largest aircraft carrier fleet, with ten in service, two under construction,[7] eight more planned, and two in active reserve. The service has 317,054 personnel on active duty and 109,671 in the Navy Reserve. It operates 290 ships in active service and more than 3,700 aircraft.[3] The U.S. Navy traces its origins to the Continental Navy, which was established during the American Revolutionary War and was essentially disbanded as a separate entity shortly thereafter. It played a major role in the American Civil War by blockading the Confederacy and seizing control of its rivers. It played the central role in the World War II defeat of Japan. The 21st century U.S. Navy maintains a sizable global presence, deploying in such areas as East Asia, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East. It is a blue-water navy with the ability to project force onto the littoral regions of the world, engage in forward areas during peacetime, and rapidly respond to regional crises, making it an active player in U.S. foreign and defense policy. The Navy is administratively managed by the Department of the Navy, which is headed by the civilian Secretary of the Navy. The Department of the Navy is itself a division of the Department of Defense, which is headed by the Secretary of Defense. The Chief of Naval Operations is a four-star admiral and the senior naval officer of the Department of the Navy.[8] However, the CNO may not be the highest ranking naval officer in the armed forces if the Chairman or the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff are Navy officers, who by law, outrank the CNO. Mission[edit] The mission of the Navy is to maintain, train and equip combat-ready Naval forces capable of winning wars, deterring aggression and maintaining freedom of the seas. —Mission statement of the United States Navy[9] From the New Recruits Handbook:[10] The mission of the United States Navy is to protect and defend the right of the United States and our allies to move freely on the oceans and to protect our country against her enemies. The United States Navy is a seaborne branch of the military of the United States. The Navy's three primary areas of responsibility:[11] The preparation of naval forces necessary for the effective prosecution of war The maintenance of naval aviation, including land-based naval aviation, air transport essential for naval operations and all air weapons and air techniques involved in the operations and activities of the Navy The development of aircraft, weapons, tactics, technique, organization, and equipment of naval combat and service elements. U.S. Navy training manuals state that the mission of the U.S. Armed Forces is "to prepare and conduct prompt and sustained combat operations in support of the national interest."[12] As part of that establishment, the U.S. Navy's functions comprise sea control, power projection and nuclear deterrence, in addition to "sealift" duties.[13] Organization The Navy falls under the administration of the Department of the Navy, under civilian leadership of the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV). The most senior naval officer is the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), a four-star admiral who is immediately under and reports to the Secretary of the Navy. At the same time, the Chief of Naval Operations is one of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which is the second-highest deliberatory body of the armed forces after the United States National Security Council, although it only plays an advisory role to the President and does not nominally form part of the chain of command. The Secretary of the Navy and Chief of Naval Operations are responsible for organizing, recruiting, training, and equipping the Navy so that it is ready for operation under the command of the unified combat command commanders. Operating forces[edit] Main article: List of units of the United States Navy There are nine components in the operating forces of the U.S. Navy: the United States Fleet Forces Command (formerly United States Atlantic Fleet), United States Pacific Fleet, United States Naval Forces Central Command, United States Naval Forces Europe, Naval Network Warfare Command, Navy Reserve, United States Naval Special Warfare Command, Operational Test and Evaluation Force, and Military Sealift Command. Fleet Forces Command controls a number of unique capabilities, including Military Sealift Command, Naval Expeditionary Combat Command, and Navy Cyber Forces. The United States Navy has six active numbered fleets – Third, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh Fleet and Tenth Fleets are each led by a three-star vice admiral,

SOUNDBITE (English) Senator Robert Byrd, Democrat, West Virginia: "How can you explain the culture of abuse that was allowed to develop in a prison system under your ultimate command?" 9. SOUNDBITE (English) General John Abizaid, CentCom Commander: "I don't believe that the culture of abuse existed in my command. And I don't believe that based on what my IG (Investigator General) told me, and what the Department of the Army IG told me, I believe that we have isolated incidents that have taken place." 10. Cutaway of lawmakers 11. Cutaway of Abizaid and Sanchez STORYLINE The top military commander in Iraq told Congress on Wednesday that US personnel who had received relatively light punishment in the prisoner abuse scandal may yet face criminal charges. In testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Lieutenant General Ricardo Sanchez said the ongoing investigations into the abuse could lead to additional courts martial and also force the military to "revisit actions previously taken" with regards to individuals already punished. Sanchez said the abuse of prisoners in Iraq would be investigated thoroughly up the chain of command and he said that included himself. Seated next to Sanchez, his superior officer acknowledged the abuse of prisoners in Afghanistan, too. The commander of the US Central Command, General John Abizaid, pledged a vigilant pursuit of Abu Ghraib investigations wherever they may lead. The hearing unfolded not long after Specialist Jeremy Sivits was sentenced in Iraq to a maximum penalty of one year in prison, a reduction in rank and a bad conduct discharge for his role in the abuse at Abu Ghraib. His was the first court-martial in the wake of the scandal that has shaken the Bush administration and coincided with an erosion in public support for the war. Abizaid and Sanchez readily acknowledged that there were problems, such as overcrowding, in the prison system in Iraq. But they insisted there was neither widespread abuse or prisoners nor official countenancing of any mistreatment that did occur. Asked by Democratic Senator Robert C. Byrd how he could explain the "culture of abuse that was allowed to develop" in the prison system, Abizaid replied that he didn't believe the culture of abuse existed under his command.

It is the top of the ladder in the Army's educational system. From Washington's time to the present day of missiles and atomic warheads, we have looked to the Generals for leadership in maintaining our liberty and security from foreign oppression. THE BIG PICTURE examines and answers the question, "What makes these men tick -- the Generals?" The camera's eye is trained on their schooling and background which ultimately fits them for their missions. As this documentary film explains, when an Army General retires, more often then not, he is invited to take on towering responsibilities in civilian life -- positions where he can bring to bear his talents and training, along with the benefits of mature experience. Many a famous former wearer of the star has moved over to important jobs in the field of public welfare, education, business and commerce, and government service, accenting the respect Americans have not only for these men, but for the character, education, and training for which the rank of General stands.'

General officer ranks currently used in the uniformed services are: One-star – Brigadier general in the Army, Marine Corps, and Air Force and rear admiral (lower half) in the Navy, Coast Guard, PHSCC, and NOAACC Two-star – Major general in the Army, Marine Corps, and Air Force and rear admiral in the Navy, Coast Guard, PHSCC, and NOAACC Three-star – Lieutenant general in the Army, Marine Corps, and Air Force and vice admiral in the Navy, Coast Guard, PHSCC, and NOAACC Four-star – General in the Army, Marine Corps, and Air Force and admiral in the Navy, Coast Guard, PHSCC, and NOAACC Above these four general officer ranks are five-star ranks, but these are generally reserved for wartime use... Nine Americans have held five-star ranks, but none currently. The highest ranks, senior to the five stars ranks, are General of the Armies (in the Army) and Admiral of the Navy (in the Navy). These ranks are sometimes called six-star ranks, but holders of the ranks have never used six-star insignia. Only three people have ever held these ranks...

It provides graduate-level instruction to senior military officers and civilians to prepare them for senior leadership assignments and responsibilities. Each year, a number of Army colonels and lieutenant colonels are considered by a board for admission. Approximately 800 students attend at any one time, half in a two-year-long distance learning program, and the other half in an on-campus, full-time resident program lasting ten months... Army applicants must have already completed the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, the required Professional Military Education for officers in the rank of major. While the Army handpicks most of the students who participate in the residential program, the student body always includes officers from the other military branches, civilians from agencies such as the Department of Defense, State Department, and National Security Agency, and officers from foreign countries... The Army War College is one of the three senior service colleges of the U.S. Department of Defense, joined by the Naval War College for the U.S. Navy and Air War College for the U.S. Air Force...

(9 Feb 2017) A few thousand more troops are needed to help end the stalemate in Afghanistan, according to a senior US military commander who also told lawmakers on Thursday that Russian meddling is complicating the counterterrorism fight. Army General John Nicholson, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, didn't provide the Senate Armed Services Committee with an exact number of additional forces. But he said they could come from the United States or other countries in the American-led coalition in Afghanistan, where the war is now in its 16th year. He said they are necessary to properly train and advise the Afghan military and perform work now handled at greater cost by contractors. There are currently about 8,400 US troops conducting counterterrorism operations against insurgents and training the Afghan army. Nicholson also said he had discussed troop levels with US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis and Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He added he believes the Trump administration will be open to a level based on requirements, rather than a predetermined figure. Nicholson contended that Russia has been publicly legitimising the Taliban by claiming that the militants are fighting Islamic terrorists while the Afghan government is not. He called that a "false narrative" and argued that Moscow's goal is to undermine the United States and NATO in Afghanistan. Afghan security forces have reduced by one-half the number of IS fighters and by two-thirds the amount of territory the extremists hold, according to the commander. Despite Moscow's overtures, Nicholson said many Afghans don't view Russia favorably, dating to the Soviet invasion and occupation of Afghanistan from 1979 to 1989.

Gen. Robert B. Abrams takes charge of FORSCOM as Gen. Mark A. Milley departs to become 39th Army Chief of Staff. FORT BRAGG, N.C. -- Gen. Robert B. Abrams took charge of the Army's largest command, Aug. 10, Monday, as his predecessor, Gen. Mark A. Milley, relinquished the U.S. Army Forces Command colors and departed for duty in Washington, D.C., to become the 39th chief of staff of the Army. By accepting the colors bearing the distinctive blue, white and red disk that makes up the U.S. Army Forces Command insignia, Abrams became the 22nd commanding general of FORSCOM. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond T. Odierno noted that Abrams is the fifth commanding general to lead FORSCOM since he's been the Army's chief of staff, "but the good news is they all seem to go on to bigger and better things." "Mark, you're an incredibly gifted officer … you have the complete confidence of our leadership and I know that many challenges await you in the Pentagon that will require patience, candor, team building, and a thorough knowledge of the joint and organizational environment, the multi-national world that we live in today. Those challenges will require strong, but balanced leadership of character. So I'm incredibly confident of everything I've seen of Mark Milley over the last 20 years that we have the right man for the job," Odierno said. Abrams' most recent assignment was as the senior military assistant to the Secretary of Defense. "I have complete confidence in Abe (Abrams) that he's going to run with this command and take it to new heights, and in doing so, he's going to prepare our Army for probably one of the most difficult missions we have, which is the unknown, the unpredictable," said Odierno. He's going to help us to continue to develop our most important asset, which is our leaders -- our noncommissioned officers and officers, who will carry this Army forward as we go." FORSCOM, which prepares conventional forces to provide a sustained flow of trained and ready land power to combatant commanders in defense of the nation at home and abroad, has direct authority over most continental United States-based conventional units of the active Army, and training and readiness oversight of much of the Army Reserve and Army National Guard. In his remarks, Abrams said that he was excited to be in the U.S. Army Forces Command formation. "FORSCOM's record over the last 14 years have been of meeting requirements, [and has] been nothing short of heroic and frequently awe-inspiring. Readiness is and remains our number one priority. Everything we do supports building and sustain readiness." "FORSCOM is by design a 'Total Force' command -- Army National Guard, U.S. Army Reserve, and the Active Component. We are one Army, one Army, working together -- shoulder to shoulder to build and sustain highly trained and disciplined Soldiers and formations in accordance with Army standards -- we are expert in our warfighting skills -- ready to deploy and win in ground combat against any enemy. As the FORSCOM commanding general, Abrams leads FORSCOM's subordinate units, located across the continental United States, which include five headquarters led by lieutenant generals -- U.S. Army Reserve Command, 1st Army, I Corps, III Corps and XVIII Airborne Corps, and nine division headquarters, led by major generals.
