At a time when our military men and women are more active than ever before, wouldn’t it make sense that they have everything they need to do their jobs and keep them as safe as they can be during training and times of engagement? It seems as though the Obama Administration is taking full advantage of and using the sequester as bargaining chips for his own agenda. While he threatens cuts for things such as military education and our defense, he is somehow able to find money to continue sending monetary aid, F-16s and tanks to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, and weapons to Syrian rebels.
Now, the latest is being felt in the Marine Corps, as they and our other military branches have been asked to cut billions from their budgets. Marine Corps Commandant James Amos urged personnel in a video to “save every round, every gallon of gas,” and to “take every single aspect or opportunity in training to get the most bang for the buck.” They are asked to preserve ammunition.
