Gen. William M. Fraser III, commander, U.S. Transportation Command, provided his annual testimony in front of the House Armed Services Committee today.

Along with Adm. William H. McRaven, commander, U.S. Special Operations Command, Gen. Fraser provided answers to a number of questions, including overall military readiness, status of threats and various concerns around the world.

In his prepared opening statement, and throughout the two-hour engagement, Gen. Fraser emphasized plans for the future.

“While the TRANSCOM team remains fully committed to our number one priority – supporting our forces overseas and executing the redeployment from Afghanistan—we are looking towards the future and preparing for a different operating environment,” Fraser said.  “Declining Department of Defense business for our industry partners requires careful consideration of how to ensure readiness of our organic and commercial air, sea and surface capabilities into the future.”
