1 min read

BudgetLt. Gen. Karen Dyson, military deputy to the assistant secretary of the Army for financial management and comptroller, has outlined the service’s focus on readiness as a priority in its fiscal year 2017 budget plan.

The U.S. Army’s approximately $148 billion budget request includes approximately $45.2 billion for operations and maintenance funding, the service branch said Tuesday.

Dyson told panelists at an Association of the U.S. Army breakfast that the service wants to address threats posed by the Islamic State group and the activities of Russia, Iran and China.

She said the Army budget must keep the service ready across all military combat operations.

The Army also seeks to invest in new lethality technology for Stryker brigades and fund the modernization for existing combat equipment, Dyson said.
