Military Times reports that “the Army must continue to be ready at a moment’s notice for whatever crisis threatens America or its allies, Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said Saturday.”

“’The readiness of that Army will remain our No. 1 priority. We have no other choice,’ Milley said, addressing the National Guard Association of the United States annual conference. ‘We must remain prepared. We can never break faith with the American people. We owe that to them, we signed up for it, we took an oath to it, and we will not fail.’”

“Speaking on the eve of the 15 th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Milley said that the threat posed by extremists has not lessened.”
