Lt. Gen. H Steven Blum quote
Lt. Gen. H Steven Blum, chief of the National Guard Bureau, commenting Jan. 11 on the change to Department of Defense policy that will limit total mobilization time of Guard and Reserve units to 12 months.

This is a historic and long-anticipated policy change that has been directed by our secretary of defense. It is clear evidence that he has listened, heard and considered our input, and has made courageous and tough adjustments that have been long-requested by governors, adjutants general, members of Congress and the reserve components' senior leaders.
