Michigan base tour


A Michigan Congressional Delegation toured several military installations in Michigan last week. The group toured the Camp Grayling Military Installation in Grayling MI, and the Selfridge Air National Guard Base among other military installations. The group also toured the Tank-automotive and Armaments Command headquartered in Warren and the Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center: the Nation's laboratory for developing advanced military ground vehicle technologies. Local U.S. Representative Candice Miller was part of the delegation that reviewed the bases. Miller says the two day Michigan Delegation Defense Tour was the first of its kind and provided insight into Michigan's military installations operations and the important role they play in our national defense. She also noted, congress has not done a good job when it comes to funding things and says that Michigan needs to continue to be the lead in everything on wheels. Military funding may be affected though, with congressional leaders yet again threatening a shutdown of the government, this time over planned parenthood funding.
