Protect America Month Calander of Events


Protect America Month: Calander Of Events

Over the past 20 years, administrations of both political parties have underfunded the military. Today, as the economy stalls and the government appears to be unable to control spending in other areas, defense spending is under attack again. Two decades of underinvestment and a decade of military conflict have left the United States military too small and inadequately equipped to answer the nation’s call today much less tomorrow. The Heritage Foundation will highlight the need for increased defense spending during its third annual Protect America Month. Throughout the month, leading conservatives and defense experts will showcase why we must commit to protecting American in an increasingly dangerous world.

About todaysawareness

The site, “beawaretoday”, is a unique prospective, as if looking down from 30,000 feet at the world of Local, National, and Foreign Affairs. Most people go through each day only seeing what is immediately affecting them and most only have a vision for dealing with their issues of only about 5 to 7 days. With, “beawaretoday”, we look at what is happening around the World and what I call the Domino Effect, to project problems that are forthcoming so that people can plan ahead to deal with them vs. dealing the alternative. I created the blog, “beawaretoday” so that I could share a forum to discuss, Current, Domestic and Foreign Affairs that affect us all through the Domino effect. I encourage you to join the Discussions or at least enjoy reading the content. Thank you, Tom Campbell
