I am grateful to our witnesses not only for appearing before us today but also for their many decades of distinguished service to our country in uniform. I also appreciate their sincere and earnest attempts over many years to warn Congress and the American people of what is happening to their Services, the brave men and women they represent, and our national security if we do not roll back sequestration and return to a strategy-based budget. We look forward to their candid testimony on this subject today." Statements, letters and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Raymond T. Odierno, Jonathan W.
