Press Release

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, issued the following statement in response to changes in the Pentagon’s policy on transgender service members.

Byrne said: “It is frustrating the Pentagon now has a strategy for transgender service members but they still lack an actual strategy for defeating radical Islamic terrorism. Once again it seems the Obama Administration is more interested in advancing a political agenda than they are in proposing sound policy. As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, I am committed to holding the Obama Administration accountable and ensuring their political agenda does not directly harm our military readiness.”
