Hopefully the sequester nonsense can be set aside and the DOD can be adequately funded.

Quote Trump commissions USS Gerald R. Ford, calls on Congress to boost defense spending

“For years, our government has subjected the military to unpredictable funding, and a devastating defense ‘sequester,’” the president said. “This has led to deferred maintenance, a lack of investment in new equipment and technology and a shortfall in military readiness. It’s been a very, very bad period of time for our military.”
