Posted September 12, 2018 07:31:10 The US military’s Blue Ribbon Committee is scheduled to vote this week on a proposal that would reduce the number of blue ribbets the military awards.
The decision will depend on the size of the proposed reduction, as well as whether the proposed savings come from more savings in pay or additional funding for other initiatives, such as the Purple Heart program.
The Blue Ribbon is an award given annually to veterans for their service to their country.
It is the military’s highest honor.
However, a proposal for a proposed cut in the number has generated controversy, as the proposal would have to be voted on by all branches of the military.
It has been proposed that the number should be reduced by half, with the reduction being made up of the number from the military personnel service and the Blue Ribbon personnel service.
While some military leaders, including Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, have said the Blue Ribbons are outdated, others have suggested the service should be abolished altogether.
The proposal has been met with some opposition, with some lawmakers calling it unnecessary and the service’s pay and benefits should be cut to help fund the proposed cuts.
In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, President Donald Trump appointed a new Secretary of the Navy, Vice Admiral Robert Harward, who has said he plans to cut the number in half, while also saying the service is a waste of money.
“The Blue Ribbon has served its purpose.
It’s not going to be replaced, and we should not waste money on a wasteful program that is not going anywhere,” Harward said in a statement.
“We need to save the Blue Ranks for our military veterans.”
It’s unclear when the proposed proposal will be voted upon, but the Pentagon is scheduled for a special session of Congress later this month.

The device was set off by a missile.
It landed near the coast of Somalia, the United States said.

A fifth nuclear test was conducted on Feb. 12, according to the United Nations.
In response to the recent tests, the U.S. and South Korea launched missile defense systems in South Korea and Japan.
The tests come as tensions have escalated on the Korean Peninsula, with the North launching several missiles in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions.
On Saturday, the South Korean military said it detected three projectiles fired from the North, prompting the U and Japan to deploy Patriot antimissile systems in the area.
A total of 10 interceptors are currently stationed in South Korean airspace, South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok told reporters on Saturday.
“The North’s test was a sign that it has mastered the art of making a nuclear missile,” Kim said, adding that the system would help guard against future nuclear strikes.
North Korea conducted its fourth nuclear test on Feb: 11, in defiance the U-N.
South Korea is now deploying Patriot anti-missile batteries to defend the country.

The North also said it would conduct an underground nuclear test next week.
The U.K. government said the North was also planning to launch a nuclear warhead, with experts saying it was unlikely the North would achieve a nuclear capability.
“It’s a big gamble, but if it’s done properly, it could be the beginning of a much bigger test,” former British Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander told Sky News.
The United States, which has been pushing to persuade North Korea to end its nuclear weapons program, said it was “deeply concerned” by the launch.
“Our commitment is to work closely with our allies and partners to help ensure that North Korea does not develop or possess nuclear weapons,” U.
