Jones Acts to Stop Harmful Cuts to Military and ENC Bases

'I have long led the fight to cut federal spending, but devastating our military is not the way to do it,' said Jones. 'If these cuts go through, there could be additional, significant cuts to end strength, as well as a reduction in procurement of essential new tools like the F-35. There could also be dramatic cuts in healthcare and other benefits and services for members of our armed forces, and potentially another BRAC round. That’s just not acceptable for Eastern North Carolina, or quite frankly, America.'
