Submitted by request of John Ford:

Military Division Appropriation Bill

1. Upon passage of this bill, $10 billion shall be appropriated from the Treasury to the Department of Defense to be used in the creation of an additional division in the Atlasian Army.


I went with $10 billion because that was John Ford's maximum estimate and I figured that it would be better to have money left over rather than to run out of money.

I trust the men and women of our armed forces more than anyone else to know what they need, and if they say that our numbers are too small, then our numbers are too small.  I believe that we owe it to them for their willingness to put their lives on the line for Atlasia to ensure that their needs are met.

I support this bill and call on all my Senators to vote yea on this bill. With a current war on terrorism going on and an inherent lack of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan I think it is of paramount importance to expand our armed forces and equip them for today's modern battles. We need an army that is trained to handle terrorism and urban warfare, not a Soviet tank battle in Eastern Germany. I thank both Secretary Ford and Senator Gabu for bringing this bill up.

I am merely going to state my support for this bill which I see to be a good move to keeping Atlasia safe, especially if we are going to be taking an interventionist foreign policy as we seem to be doing.

All I ask if this bill is passed, is that the division be named the 8th Infantry Division in recognition of that division's long history of service in defense of Atlasia.

Yea.

This is sorely needed; full funding of Atlasian troops must remain a top priority.

I think we'll call it the 8th Infantry Division then.

My cousin served in it during the late eighties and got me all these patches and insignia.  Loved it ever since.

Well, it's been well over a week with no word from the President, so this bill passes automatically.
