                                                                                              May 5, 2009 

On behalf of the more than 100,000 members of the Association of the United States Army, I write to urge you to complete action on the 2009 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations bill immediately.  Now is the time for action – not words.

In a time of war, expeditious completion of defense legislation is absolutely essential.  Our Army in the field needs timely access to appropriate funding.

I ask that you focus your considerable energies solely on completing a bill that will provide an uninterrupted stream of funds and will be ready for signature by the President before the end of May.

                                                                                             Sincerely,

                                                                                             GORDON R. SULLIVAN
