Forbes Receives Chaplain Alliance Torchbearer Award for Dedication to Religious Freedom
Washington, D.C. – Congressman J. Randy Forbes was selected by the Chaplain Alliance For Religious Liberty as the 2016 recipient of the Chaplain Alliance Torchbearer Award. Forbes received this award in recognition of his bold leadership in defending the religious freedom of all military personnel through his work as Chairman of the House Armed Services Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee and Founder and Co-Chairman of the Congressional Prayer Caucus.     “We are delighted to present our Torchbearer Award to Representative Forbes for his faithful stand to protect servicemembers’ God-given, constitutionally protected religious liberties.

The Way Forward
When I first came to Washington, I kept finding myself getting turned around while driving my car through the unfamiliar city. There are a lot of one-way roads, street names that change based on quadrants, and the city is laid out in a spoke-and-wheel system, rather than a typical grid system. The roundabouts and diagonal streets were a far cry from the rural roads I grew up on in Hampton Roads. I remember a friend once telling me a story about getting lost in Washington, DC. His trick was to look for the Washington Monument. The marble obelisk towers over all other buildings around it, and it can be seen from many places in the city.

Failure to fully respect the ruling of the arbitration panel would not only expose China’s belief in a ‘might makes right’ philosophy for all the world to see- it would also profoundly fray the post-1945 international order that Beijing has been chipping away at for nearly a decade. The United States must stand steadfastly on the side of international law and the peaceful resolution of disputes, and hold China to account for its behavior following this ruling.”
Forbes Releases Statement on Navy's Long-Overdue 30 Year Shipbuilding Plan
Washington, D.C. –Congressman J. Randy Forbes (VA-04), Chairman of the House Armed Services Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, issued the following statement upon release of the overdue 30 Year Shipbuilding Plan: “This long-overdue plan is intended to provide Congress and the public with a sense of the Navy's likely future trajectory.I am concerned that despite Congress' clear intent to bend the curve lines and grow the fleet, this document still shows attack submarine production returning to a single boat in 2021, a shortfall in small surface combatants, and an eventual return to 10 carriers. All told, the plan will result in a fleet that will only meets the Navy's outdated requirement of 308 ships for 8 years, and falls far short of the larger force that the CNO and every serious naval analyst thinks we need for the future.It is also important to note that even this budget-constrained plan is predicated on a 20% increase in funding to pay for Ohio Replacem
