Description Department of Defense Authorization for Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2002, Vol. 3 de United States Congress Senat Services:

Excerpt from Department of Defense Authorization for Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2002, Vol. 3: Hearings Before the Committee on Armed Services, United States Senate, One Hundred Seventh Congress, Second Session on S. 1416 It is my goal that at the completion of the hearing, the subcommittee members will have a better appreciation of the conditions, both good and bad, that our military personnel and families face on a daily basis. Since assuming the chairmanship of this subcommittee 4 years ago, I have stressed the importance of our facilities to the readiness and the quality of life of our Armed Forces. I do applaud President Bush for his commitment to improving the living conditions of our military personnel. However, this commitment is only a first step because quality of life not only implies barracks and family housing, but also includes the working environment. During visits to military facilities, I have seen the deplorable conditions in which our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines, both in the active and the Reserve components, must work to repair and maintain sophisticated equipment required to keep the United States Armed Forces the best in the world. For example, at Fort Sill, we are maintaining today's artillery systems in motor pools that were designed and built for the World War II towed artillery. We have trainee barracks in which sewer backups are the routine and pre-World War II buildings that are on the verge of collapse. I was at Fort Bragg during a rainstorm and saw our troops actually covering up some of their equipment to keep it dry within the barracks. At Camp Lejeune, the roof on the facility that houses a small arms simulator was leaking, which interrupted training and threatened the sophisticated simulators. At Miramar, the outdated hangars were crowded and did not have the appropriate equipment to maintain the marines' helicopters. These are conditions that the private sector would never tolerate and there is no reason that the military should tolerate them either. During prior subcommittee hearings, high-ranking military and civilian Department of Defense officials have testified regarding funding shortfalls in the military construction and real property maintenance (RPM) accounts. Their testimony focused on the budget deliberation and the tradeoffs required to meet the modernization goals of the Department. They rarely touched on the impact these tradeoffs have had on the individual service members and their readiness at the installations. Today we will hear from individuals who carry out the budget decisions of the Department of Defense and Congress. We will also hear from senior NCOs whose personnel must live and work in the facilities that have been neglected due to the continual underfunding of our military construction and RPM accounts. I would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our witnesses. I want to point out that the witnesses were selected from a pool identified by the military services. Senator Akaka and I have made the final selection based on their experience and their type of installation and geographical region. Each of them has a wealth of experience in their field and all have long and distinguished careers. To ensure we gain the maximum benefit from this hearing, I would like to keep this informal.
