Official urges Reserve component funding, predictability
from American Forces Press Service
Emphasizing the critical role the reserve components play in U.S. national defense, the senior Pentagon reserve affairs official emphasized to Congress the importance of adequately funding the force and providing predictability about deployments. "As we reinforce policies, implement strategies and continue to call on our reserve components, we must remember that 'judicious use' is still the watchword," Dennis M. McCarthy, assistant secretary of defense for reserve affairs, said in his prepared statement to the Senate Armed Service Committee's personnel subcommittee. McCarthy was joined by the six reserve component chiefs at his first hearing before the panel since his confirmation in June.
