This is a testimony compilation of the April 5, 2017 hearing on "Damage to the Military from a Continuing Resolution" held before the House Committee on Armed Services. From the statement of David Goldfein: "The military funding constraints and resulting budgetary turbulence stemming from the Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA), when combined with an unrelenting succession of eight Continuing Resolutions (CR), have critically challenged our ability to sustain warfighting capacity, improve readiness, modernize our force, and invest in research and development to maintain decisive advantages over near-peer competitors. The competitive edge we've long maintained over these actors is rapidly closing and, in some cases, has closed." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David L. Goldfein, Mark A. Milley, Robert B. Neller, and John M. Richardson.
