U.S. Army rebuilding Short-Range Air Defense

 

U.S. ArmyFort Sill, OK – The United States Army is now standing up short-range air defense units, known as SHORAD battalions, and offering a five-week pilot Stinger course for Soldiers in maneuver units.

It’s part of a critical effort to defend maneuver units against the threat of aircraft, drones and cruise missiles, said Col. Mark A. Holler, commandant of the Air Defense Artillery School at Fort Sill.

Most of the SHORAD battalions in the active component were deactivated a decade ago because the U.S. Army needed this force structure to grow maneuver brigade combat teams for counter-insurgency operations, Holler said.

Tennessee sees 2 cent increase in Gas Prices

AAATampa, FL – More than 100 million Americans are taking to the roadways to travel for the holidays, but that hasn’t had a large impact on gas prices. At the start of the work week, only about a dozen states are seeing more expensive gas prices with increases of less than a dime.

“AAA forecasts that 104 million Americans will travel by car – the most on record – for a year-end holiday,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson.

Marsha Blackburn Report: A Sham Process

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Here’s the scoop on impeachment. For the past three years, Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who is currently the Speaker of the House of Representatives, has grasped aimlessly at every unsubstantiated claim, desperate to find an impeachable offense.

There is a reason the only bipartisan vote in the House was against impeachment. President Donald Trump has not abused his power. If the House sends its articles of impeachment to the Senate and the trial begins, Tennesseans can count on me to stand with President Trump.

Marsha Blackburn says a Balanced Approach to Privacy Legislation Will Protect American Consumers from Bad Actors

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Once upon a time, American consumers adopted new tech without stopping to consider the consequences.

The allure of connectivity outweighed misgivings about surrendering our full names, phone numbers, and strong opinions on national politics to an online void we barely understood. We dismissed the threat of privacy violations because, after all, “they (meaning the corporate behemoth that is Big Tech) would never.”

In 2019, we know that they absolutely would, and that they do.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.
