At the same time our military is being called to assist Africa with its health crisis, it is also being called to support the pivot to Asia, bolster our European partners against growing Russian aggression, conduct strikes against ISIL, and also successfully transition the mission in Afghanistan, where nearly 30,000 brave men and women still serve today
