Open link to review Top 5 Early Bird Brief(s)

1. House defense bill strips Confederate base names, curbs presidentís powers in troop deployments

(Defense News) In a strong bipartisan vote, House lawmakers on Tuesday passed their $740.5 billion plan for the annual defense authorization bill, including provisions for a hefty military pay raise next year, new restrictions on the presidentís war powers and requirements that the Defense Department rename bases honoring Confederate leaders.

2. Esper: ĎNo ordersí issued to remove forces from South Korea

(Defense News) The U.S. defense secretary said Tuesday he has not issued orders to remove American forces from South Korea, but he did leave the door open for such a move in the future.

3. Trump is determined to bring home U.S. military forces from somewhere
(Washington Post) When President Trump spoke with Pentagon leaders early last month about U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan, he was anxious for a hefty reduction by Election Day in November, according to U.S. officials familiar with the discussion.

4. Concerns about federal agents wearing military camo raised by DoD in after-action review

(Military Times) Defense Secretary Mark Esper is concerned about how federal agents are identifying themselves, as camo-clad law enforcement rebuff nation-wide protests this summer and confuse the public about the role the military is playing domestically.

5. US service member dies in Syria

(Army Times) A U.S. service member died in Syria on Tuesday, according to military officials in the region.
