What is going on this 2018 under the Trump administration? Let’s take a look around on the status of the US army and what are the upgrades and new bills that have been signed.
First is an article from Association of the United States Army. In here, they stated how Trump signed the 2018 Defense Policy Bill.
A $692.1 billion defense policy plan has been signed into law by President Donald Trump, holding the promise of billions more for Army weapons, more soldiers and the biggest military raise in eight years.
$692.1 billion is not a small number to commit to in an organizational fund. The Trump administration sure does not play around with their improvement plans with the US army.
Next is an article from Association of the United States Army. This one talks about the total of 1.2 million total of army soldiers, a plan of the the Trump administration.
The Trump administration’s long-term defense plan calls for a 13 percent increase in the size of the Regular Army and 20 percent increases in the Army National Guard and Army Reserve, according to a new analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.
The possible increase in size of the army would create a big positive impact towards the performance of our soldiers and also, it would definitely create a much bigger change in a way our countrymen would depend on our walking heroes.
