Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement on today’s announcement regarding the decision to inactivate the 159th Combat Aviation Brigade at Fort Campbell:

“We are disappointed in the deactivation of the 159th Combat Aviation brigade and the loss of those soldiers to Fort Campbell,” Blackburn said. “We continue to encourage the administration and Secretary of Defense Hagel to work with us on the funding needs of our nation's military. We continue to voice our opinions that you cannot push the military to keep doing more with less funding and resources. We will continue to try to protect our resources at Fort Campbell.”
