~ A Protect America Month Program ~
After over a decade of war, America’s armed forces are under stress and at risk. Sequestration and the Administration’s budget cuts threaten to undermine America’s capability to win wars and prepare for future conflicts. They also are taking away predictability with regard to planning for unexpected contingencies in the future.
One of the few bills that the President has signed into law each year since taking office is the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Join us as Armed Services Committee Chairman McKeon offers insights into the upcoming NDAA process, evaluates the Obama Administration’s national security policies, and reflects upon their impact on America’s core defense capabilities.
The Heritage Foundation’s annual Protect America Month features speeches by national leaders,
special publications as well as other events addressing the vital issue of protecting America
in an increasingly challenging world.
