How we plan to invest those funds, along with our planned investments for the next five years - as detailed in the customary Future Years Defense Program (FYDP) that's included in the President's budget submission - are critical to DoD's ability to carry out our mission of national defense with the excellence the American people expect of their military, which is today the finest fighting force the world has ever known."
