Abstract:

The Armed Forces of the United States have improved their readiness and combat capability. The performance of members of the Armed Forces over the past years in meeting the challenges of increasing preparedness and improving efficiency is a great credit to this nation. Our men and women in Service have demonstrated responsiveness, professionalism and spirit. Many of the answers to the continuing problems of military strength and capability, however, lie beyond their purview--much of it is within yours. Decisions and actions are required of the Congress and the American people to reverse these trends of declining relative military strength.
