Act Now!!! Support H.R. 3930, the National Commission on the Structure of the Army Act of 2014
The new budget proposed by the administration includes severe cuts to the National Guard. In its fiscal 2015 budget submission to Congress, the Army is proposing an end strength of 315,000 troops for the Army National Guard, down from its current 350,000, and the transfer of much of the Army Guard’s helicopter fleet to the active-component force. The Army plan removes all AH-64 Apaches and half of the UH-72 Lakotas, along with other aircraft, replacing them with older UH-60 Black Hawks for a net loss of more than 100 aircraft for the Army Guard. The Texas National Guard stands to lose force structure and combat aviation assets under this plan. Immediate steps must be taken to prevent this legislation from passing. Ask your representative to support H.R. 3930, the National Commission on the Structure of the Army Act of 2014, that forms a commission to study the Army’s force structure, and prevents the transfer of Army Guard aircraft and the reduction of the force’s end strength.
