At first I was freaking out about sequestering the military budget. Then I realized that their is much not accounted for money in defense, some of it is justified for secrecy reasons. However, this will help get the non-productive fat out of the military budget, and is therefore good. The might of the U.S. Military, and the pay for soldiers must not decline, nor should the number of soldiers decline. Semper Fi. Peter Guild, Quincy, MA.
