0-10

fellow Americans

0-11

I'm joining you today from the deck of

0-14

what will be our nation's newest

0-16

and soon to be commissioned, Gerald

0-19

R Ford and as you can see I'm wearing a

0-22

jacket and I had that they just gave me

0-25

not really used to it but it feels

0-28

awfully good i'm very proud of that

0-29

actually are carriers are the

0-31

centerpiece of American military might

0-34

projecting power and are totally

0-37

unparalleled strength that see this

0-40

beautiful new warship represents the

0-42

future of naval aviation and she will

0-45

serve as a cornerstone of our national

0-48

defense for decades and decades to come

0-51

a famous aviator once wrote that to

0-54

build a truly great ship we shouldn't

0-57

begin by gathering wood cutting boards

1-00

for distributing work but instead by

1-03

awakening within the people a desire for

1-07

the vast and endless sea so true in the

1-11

same way we must continue to renew the

1-14

American spirit in order to rebuild our

1-17

country and we build it we will on

1-21

tuesday before a joint session to

1-23

Congress I laid out of version i hope

1-26

you all watched for how to accomplish

1-29

that national rebuilding my vision

1-33

includes the elimination of the defense

1-35

sequester which has imposed steep cuts

1-39

for military we must give our sailors

1-42

soldiers airmen Marines and Coast

1-44

Guardsmen the tools equipment resources

1-47

and training they need to get the job

1-50

done and get it done right especially in

1-54

these very dangerous times the active

1-58

duty army has been reduced by more than

2-01

85,000 meant since 2009 and we have over

2-06

18,000 fewer active-duty Marines

2-11

Air Force it's the smallest it's been

2-14

since 1947 and their planes are on

2-19

average nearly 30 years old if you can

2-23

believe that our Navy sleep is the

2-26

smallest it's been since world war one

2-29

and that's a long time ago

2-32

frontline navy and marine strike fighter

2-34

aircraft are more likely to be down for

2-36

maintenance than to be in the sky we

2-39

cannot afford to continue down this path

2-42

my budget will give America's armed

2-45

forces the resources they need to

2-47

achieve full and total military

2-49

preparedness to meet any and all global

2-53

challenges and meet them we will

2-57

investing in the military means

3-00

investing in peace because the best way

3-03

to prevent war as George Washington said

3-07

is to be prepared for it

3-10

most importantly an investment in the

3-13

the military is an investment in the

3-14

incredible men and women who serve our

3-17

country in uniform they are the best of

3-20

us

3-21

they are the greatest force for peace

3-23

and justice the world has ever known and

3-26

we will support them every single step

3-29

of the way these are truly exciting

3-32

times amazing opportunities are

3-35

unfolding before us to strengthen our

3-37

military to reboot our economy and to

3-41

bring back our jobs if we all work

3-44

together and put our country first then

3-47

anything is possible let us seize this

3-50

moment and make the most of this

3-51

incredible opportunity for national Reno

3-55

may God bless the men and women of our

3-58

military and may God bless the United

4-01

States of America the country we love
