Tuition Assistance, Furloughs, and Platforms
What the Navy's Budget Means to You
With sequestration and the continuing resolution affecting the budget, the Navy is enduring some rough financial seas. Regardless of the decisions that Navy leadership have made, programs like Tuition Assistance, Sailor's pay, and Permanent Change of Station moves have remained unaffected.
The Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert, and Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. James Amos spoke to the House Armed Services Committee April 16 about the financial future of the Navy and Marine Corps.
"We are working to make sure that our Sailors and Marines have the tools and the platforms they need to do the missions they are given," said Mabus. "One of the most important of these is our fleet. Mr. Chairman, the budget we are submitting supports the defense strategy, preserves the readiness of our people, and it builds on the success we've achieved in shipbuilding."
