Cantor Statement on Joint Forces Command

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Eric Cantor (VA-07) today issued the following statement after recent reports that the Defense Business Board (DBB), a Pentagon advisory board, is expected to recommend the elimination of the Joint Forces Command:

"Joint Forces Command (JFCOM) is a critical combatant command charged with the important mission of ensuring that our military is fully equipped to fight our nation's wars in a highly unified, well coordinated, and lethal manner. JFCOM provides the strategic integration of forces, equipment, and resources necessary to fight today's battles while developing joint war fighting concepts and capabilities for the future.

"All ideas to reduce wasteful spending and save taxpayers money should be reviewed. However, before any recommendation is given serious consideration, I firmly believe it must include an accurate cost benefit analysis of the true costs of implementing any proposal, as well as its impact on our national security and economic future."
