Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond F. Chandler III (right) and other service senior enlisted advisors testify to Congress, March 19, 2013, about quality of life and current fiscal uncertainty. He and his counterparts testified before the House Committee on Appropriations, subcommittee on Military Construction, Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies. Chandler said the current continuing resolution is affecting shortfalls in Army funding of overseas contingency operations due to emerging costs in theater, and with the enactment of sequestration, the Army is also being forced to make dramatic cuts to personnel, readiness, and modernization programs, thereby putting national security at risk.
