Congressman Roscoe Bartlett (R-6-MD) urged support for our troops and veterans and thanked them for their service during closing remarks of a hearing on April 1, 2011. Congressman Bartlett is the chairman of the Subcommittee on Tactical and Air Land Forces of the House Armed Services Committee. He presided over a hearing about the President's Budget for Fiscal Year 2012 and the status of equipment for the Army and Air Force National Guard. Congressman Bartlett begins his closing remarks by thanking the Services for their efforts to reduce suicides by troops and expressed concern about the number of homeless veterans. He urged more support by the Services and American society as soldiers and guard members transition from active duty to veteran and retired status. Between 1:13 and 3:07, Congressman Bartlett recounts the emotional goodbyes he recently witnessed between young couples at a deployment ceremony for a National Guard unit. He especially notes the example of the Company Commander who would leave behind his wife who is six months pregnant and their 18-month old son to go to Egypt for a year. Congressman Bartlett thanked all of the witnesses for their leadership. He asked them to extend his thanks to all of the people under their command.
