This testimony compilation is from the April 23, 2013 hearing, "Hearing to Receive Testimony on the Department of the Army in Review of the Defense Authorization Request for Fiscal Year 2014 and the Future Years Defense Program," before the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of Carl Levin: "The sequestration required by the Budget Control Act in fiscal year 2013, along with a higher-than- expected operating tempo in Afghanistan, has led to a $12 billion shortfall in Army operation and maintenance accounts, leading to the cancellation of major training exercises and the deferral of required equipment maintenance and repair. By the end of September, only one-third of the Army's Active Duty units are expected to have acceptable readiness ratings. We look forward to the testimony of our witnesses on how the fiscal situation facing the Army is likely to impact military and civilian personnel, families, readiness, modernization, and, as well, on the operations on Afghanistan." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Carl Levin, John M. McHugh, and Raymond T. Odierno.
