Supporting the Changing Mission of Our Military

For fifty-six years, Congress has consecutively passed a National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). This legislation authorizes funding and operations for the Department of Defense and military personnel. It is one of Congress’ most basic and fundamental responsibilities.

The NDAA recently passed by Congress provides one of the largest funding boosts our military has received in eight years at $631.5 billion, with a $28.5 billion increase for essential readiness recovery. These funds will be directed at increasing military size, equipment maintenance, readiness overseas, personnel support and much more.

Over the past fifteen years, the nature of our defense needs have changed dramatically. The emergence and rise of terrorism has fundamentally altered the challenges we face, as well as the tools and policies necessary to meet them.
