Army chief: Fiscal 2016 sequestration marks 'breaking point'
Army News Service via U.S. Department of Defense
Should sequestration resume in fiscal year 2016 as current law requires, "it will be very difficult for us to lead around the world,” Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno said in Washington Sept. 19. Fiscal 2016 is “a breaking point," Odierno told the Defense Writers Group. "I'm not seeing peace breaking out around the world in ’16," he added. Everyone wants the United States to lead the way in resolving global conflicts and crises, the general said — not necessarily supplying the preponderance of forces, but being involved to some extent. The nagging question, he said, is "Do we want to do that or not?"

US, Arab nations strike ISIS in Syria; US hits 2nd terror group
CNN
The United States and several Arab nations rained bombs on ISIS targets in Syria Sept. 23 — the first U.S. military offensive in the war-torn country and a forceful message to the militant group that the U.S. would not stand by idly while it carried out its rampage of terror. The United States also took action — on its own — against another terrorist organization, the Khorasan Group, the military said. That group presented an "imminent" threat to the West, a senior U.S. official told CNN.

National Guard resumes September training
Army Times
September weekend drills for Army National Guard soldiers are back on track after a $101 million shortfall forced multiple states to postpone their training. The shortfall, which came in the final weeks of the fiscal year, stems in part from unexpectedly high costs related to training personnel. To fix the problem, the National Guard Bureau submitted to Congress a reprogramming request, in effect asking for permission to move existing money from one account to another.

Report: Some causes of suicide in military need more study
USA Today
While the military has poured more money into suicide research than any other sector of American society in recent years, certain targets in dire need of study remain underfunded, according to a RAND Corp. report released Sept. 23. Researchers sampled opinions of leading suicide experts within the military and on the RAND Corp. staff about the most important areas needing research. They found the those areas — improving ways of identifying those who are suicidal; and developing better methods for the ongoing care of those with self-destructive tendencies — receive little or moderate focus in either funding or number of studies.

Perry asks National Guard to search for dead immigrants
The Hill
Texas Gov. Rick Perry has ordered the National Guard to search for the bodies of immigrants who have died after crossing illegally into the state. Perry, who earlier in the summer had ordered as many as 1,000 National Guard troops to the border to fight illegal immigration, has tapped the extra manpower to help local law enforcers locate hundreds of immigrants thought to have died in Brooks County, a desolate part of the state roughly 100 miles north of the southern border.

'Horror show' hotel renovated, transformed into home for veterans
SFGate
Four years ago it was described as San Francisco’s worst SRO and a “horror show.” Now, after almost $10 million in renovations, the former Stanford Hotel on Kearny Street is about to give 130 veterans something many have lacked for years: a home. San Francisco is preparing to lease the former single-room occupancy hotel for about $2 million a year for at least 10 years to provide housing for the city’s most desperate homeless veterans. About 73 percent of the costs are to be covered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Commentary: Real cost of Obama's war against for-profit colleges
The Hill
Until recently Corinthian Colleges Inc. was one of the largest providers of postsecondary education in the country. As recently as 2010 it enrolled around 112,000 students; even after a relentless campaign by politicians to dismantle proprietary education institutions, it enrolled 72,000 students across the country. But several weeks ago the Department of Education, in its zeal to target proprietary colleges, imposed a 21-day hold on Corinthian College’s access to federal student aid because it "failed to address concerns about its practices.”
