Daniel Kim Views  

On the 16th of the afternoon (local time), Jack Reed, Chairman of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee; Roger Wicker, Republican Ranking Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee; Mike Rogers, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee; Adam Smith, Democratic Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, the couple of former Chairman Walter Sharp of the Korean Defense Veterans Association (KDVA), Chairman Curtis Scaparrotti of the KDVA, and former Chairman Gary L. North of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) were observed attending the MOAA “Award Group & Winner Reception” at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington D.C.
The MOAA “Award Group & Winner Reception” was in progress on the afternoon of the 16th at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C.

Chairmen and Secretaries of the U.S. Senate and House Armed Services Committees: “Bipartisan Passage of Defense Budget for 63 Years…Cooperation Beyond Party, Region, and Ideological Differences”

During the MOAA event, the Chairmen and Secretaries of the Senate and House Armed Services Committees emphasized the importance of bipartisan support for the National Defense Authorization Act in their speeches.

Chairman Reed underscored Congress’s bipartisan passing of the National Defense Authorization Act for approximately 63 years, stating, “We are endeavoring to provide our utmost support to those who safeguard our nation.”

In response, Roger Wicker, Republican Ranking Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee from Mississippi, emphasized that the National Defense Authorization Act consistently garners bipartisan support and transcends both the Senate and the House, saying, “We must conduct the affairs of the Senate and House Armed Services Committees by the vision of the founders.”

He underscored, “Their intent was for the House and Senate to collaborate in a spirit of compromise, irrespective of party, regional, or ideological differences.”

Republican Mike Rogers, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, commended the Senate and House Armed Services Committees for unanimously or near-unanimously passing the National Defense Authorization Act for 63 years, regardless of the president and the majority in Congress. This demonstrates Congress’s commitment to supporting the men and women in uniform.

Adam Smith, Democratic Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, echoed his concurrence with the opinions of his three colleagues.

On the 16th afternoon (local time), Curtis Scaparrotti, Chairman of the Korean Defense Veterans Association (KDVA), is seen delivering his acceptance speech after receiving the Merit Award at the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) “Award Group & Winner Reception” held at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington D.C.

◇The Korean Defense Veterans Association (KDVA), led by General Curtis Scaparrotti, expressed gratitude for the active participation of Korean sponsors and their deep appreciation for the contributions of the U.S. military upon receiving the Merit Award from the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) during the event held on this day.

The association stated that the award was bestowed upon the KDVA in recognition of its consistent support for national defense and the military community, representing the collective efforts of 360,000 members, including active-duty, reserve, and former officers, as well as their families and survivors.

In his acceptance speech, General Scaparrotti highlighted the establishment of the KDVA in 2017 to assist 1.8 million Korean War veterans, 3.3 million reserve U.S. forces in Korea, and their families. He noted the proactive involvement of Koreans in fundraising activities organized by the Korea-U.S. Alliance Foundation, which supports the KDVA. Additionally, he expressed profound gratitude for the significant contributions of the U.S. military.

As a former NATO Commander, General Scaparrotti underscored the role of the alliance between Korea and the United States, two of the world’s top ten economies, in ensuring stability and security on the Korean Peninsula.
