Marsha Blackburn Report: Calling Out Biden’s Anti-Family Agenda

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – President Joe Biden and D.C. politicians want to spend trillions upon trillions of dollars to incentivize dependency on the federal government. To accomplish this, they will take even more money out of Tennesseans’ hard-earned paychecks.

The so-called ‘American Families Plan’ that Joe Biden’s team created for him will replace community with collectivism. Each program is just one more avenue for the government to gain a foothold into our homes. I will not stand by while Joe Biden and Kamala Harris attempt to gain control over Tennessee families.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

Soldiers receive Non-Standard Logistics training at Fort Campbell

 

5th Special Forces GroupFort Campbell, KY – The mission to subtly deliver crucial supplies to soldiers operating in enemy territory just got a bit easier for U.S. Army logistics operators at Fort Campbell.

Twenty-five Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division, 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, and 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), gathered September 9th-13th, for a Non-standard Logistics Course hosted by a team of industry experts from Diversified Logistics Solutions out of Southern Pines, North Carolina.

Non-standard logistics are typically conducted during unconventional warfare operations behind enemy lines, where even the slightest U.S. signature in a denied area can compromise the overall mission.
