This is the February 15, 27; March 8, 13, 15, 20, 22; and April 10, 12, 19, 24, 26, 2018 hearing on "Department of Defense Authorization for Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2019 and the Future Years Defense Program, Part 1," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services. From the Document: "The new National Defense Strategy, the NDS, identifies protecting the Homeland, sustaining American advantages in the western hemisphere as key priorities even as the DOD [Department of Defense] focuses on the rising challenge of great power competitors. As we have seen from increasing economic and military efforts by China and by Russia to gain a foothold in the Americas, the boundaries between great power competition and unconventional threats are increasingly blurred. I think that is one reason when General Dunford made the observation that we are losing our qualitative and quantitative edge on China and Russia." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Lori J. Robinson, Kurt W. Tidd, Michael S. Rogers, Curtis M. Scaparrotti, Joseph L. Votel, Harry B. Harris Jr., John E. Hyen, Richard J. Perry, Darren W. McDew, Mark T. Esper, Richard V. Spencer, John M. Richardson, Robert B. Neller, Heather A. Wilson, David L. Goldfein, James N. Mattis, and Joseph F. Dunford Jr.,
