Governor Bush opposes the $1 trillion in defense cuts passed by President Obama and Congress. He has committed to rebuilding the military and restoring faith with our troops. Governor Bush would increase the size of the Army by 40,000 soldiers and the size of the Marine Corps by 4,000 Marines. He would increase the size of the Navy and increase Virginia-class submarine production. He would replace aircraft that is older than our pilots. Governor Bush believes that the best way to secure the peace is to be strong and ready for any national emergency.
