It covers the latest debates, laws and decisions that affect the nation's security, and the way in which the military operates. Those decisions matter as they directly impact on the lives of those who serve in the military, as well as protecting the lives and lifestyles of everyday Americans living at home and abroad. The defense policies of other countries matter too, as does the diplomatic maneuverings between governments.
