U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), vice chairman of the Senate Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, today conferred with Maj. Gen. Augustus L. Collins, Adjutant General of Mississippi, about the Mississippi Army and Air National Guard.

Collins, who serves as the Commanding General of both the Army and Air National Guard in Mississippi, provided on update on the Guard’s activities and outlook.

“Mississippi’s National Guard units have served this country with distinction. I will be skeptical of proposals that would diminish the effectiveness of the National Guard to provide critical services,” Cochran said this week following a public review of Obama administration’s proposed FY2015 Department of Defense budget.

The President’s FY2015 budget plan is scheduled to be submitted to the Congress on March 4.
