The Army Needs YOUR Help

I attended a meeting in the Pentagon last week with Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.  He reminded me and other association leaders of the vital role our members play in pushing Congress to act on issues that matter to us and our defense forces. 

YOU – AUSA members – matter.  Your voice matters.  Because you vote, because you are the grassroots, your voice speaks far louder than mine.  So I urge you to go to our website and click the Contact Congress button, put in your Zip Code and send the prepared letter titled “Stop Sequestration Now” to your members of Congress. 

Speak up and let your voice be heard.  Our Army must be appropriately funded to preserve its mission readiness, modernization, pay and benefits today and tomorrow.

AUSA National will continue to beat the drum to fund our Army, but YOU will help the drum beat loud enough so that those who must heed the call will hear it.  Act now!
