 CNO testifies before House Armed Services Committee
Before receiving testimony, Hunter and other HASC members were unanimous in their praise of the Navy and Marine Corps' performance in the global war on terror and continuing transformation.
"I'm confident I speak for the entire committee in recognizing the sacrifices of the men and women of the Navy and Marine Corps as they continue to conquer the challenges of the 21st century," Hunter said.
England began the testimony by saying that today's Navy and Marine Corps team is the most capable that the United States has ever had, and that the men and women that make up that team "are indeed, our greatest asset."

 COMMITTEE ON ARMED SERVICES
The committee directs that none of the funds authorized for the Marine Corps truck upgrade program and no more than 75 percent of the funds authorized for the FMTV program may be obligated until the USD(A&T) reports to the congressional defense committees on the results of these reviews and any recommendations he may have.
Accordingly, the committee directs the Secretary of the Army to maintain the 120 millimeter tank ammunition LAP operations at the Milan Army Ammunition Plant until after the 1995 round of base closures and the Secretary certifies to the congressional defense committees that it would be cost-effective to perform this function elsewhere.
The committee recommends the continuation of this practice and further recommends that the congressional defense committees be notified in advance of any technical changes or amendments to treaties that result in clarification of the definitions of understood meanings.

 United States Coast Guard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
One of the seven uniformed services of the United States, and the smallest armed service of the United States, it has a broad and important role in homeland security, law enforcement, search and rescue, marine environmental pollution response and the maintenance of intercoastal and offshore aids to navigation (ATON).
The legal basis for the Coast Guard is Title 14 of the United States Code, which states: "The Coast Guard as established January 28, 1915, shall be a military service and a branch of the armed forces of the United States at all times." During wartime, the Coast Guard reports to the Department of Defense.
The order stated the Ensign would be "16 perpendicular stripes, alternate red and white, the union of the ensign to be the arms of the United States in a dark blue on a white field." (There were 16 states in the United States at the time).

 Rise of Domestic Terrorism and Its Relation to United States Armed Forces
A report published by the Anti-Defamation League in October, 1994 stated, that at that time, there were no fewer than 13 states in which armed right-wing, and/or racist militias were operating, including: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia.
Discussion: Recent events of domestic terrorism which have been either perpetrated by active duty United States military personnel, or have been indirectly linked to active duty and ex-military persons, have caused significant concern and alarm over the extent to which extremists and hate-groups are present in the military services.
A survey of approximately 175 mid-grade military officers, predominantly United States Marine Corps Majors, was conducted to determine the perceptions and attitudes common among such a cohort regarding the threats posed to "civilian and military authority" by contemporary extremist and terrorist groups.
