Document: SECDEF Carter Letter to John McCain on 2017 Defense Bill

The following is the July 13, 2016 letter from Secretary of Defense Ash Carter to Senate Armed Services Committee Chair Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on the proposed Fiscal Year 2017 National Defense Authorization Act.

The letter lists several concerns Carter has found with draft versions of both the House and Senate versions of the NDAA bill and said he would recommend a veto of the bill to President Obama.

    God save us from meddling politicians. The pantry is almost bare and they still need to feather their own nests at the expense of the serviceman.

    Carter writes pretty harsh letters. But he’s spot on with moat points.

  • John B. Morgen

    President Obama better veto this defense bill.

      Agreed, from the Point of View of the People in Uniform. Virtually Serves THEM “Nothing”…
