"The military is... a political football and meanwhile we are unfortunately losing more and more service members in training accidents..."

"The most important part of our defense are the men and women who serve."

"Just last year, 2017, we lost 21 service members who were killed in hostile action but we lost 80, four times as many, who were killed in training accidents.  That's part of the human cost."
