The Pentagon has submitted a $9.6 billion reprogramming request
for Fiscal 2013 to Congress as well as its request for $79.4 billion to cover
overseas contingency operations in Fiscal 2014, said Pentagon Press Secretary
George Little, May 20, 2013. Defense Department officials seek to fix large
shortfalls in overseas war funding and larger-than-expected fuel bills in this fiscal
year with the reprogramming request, said Little. Here, two F-16s deployed from
