Active duty Air Force for 4 years & reserves for 14 years

While stationed at Andersen AFB in Guam on active duty, Ted was Chief of Operations Law for the 36th Air Base Wing and performed duties as an executive officer during OPERATION PACIFIC HAVEN. The American military saved and extracted thousands of Kurdish refugees from Northern Iraq and flew them to Guam. For his outstanding efforts during this humanitarian operation, Ted received the Air Force Humanitarian Service Medal.

As a reservist at March Air Reserve Base in Riverside, Ted participated in OPERATION NOBLE EAGLE, which occurred shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Ted Lieu is currently a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Air Force Reserves and is stationed at Los Angeles AFB. Ted has now served in the Air Force for over 18 years, of which over four were on active duty.

Respect sequestration on defense budget without gimmicks.

Lieu voted NAY National Defense Authorization Act

HR 1735 authorizes appropriations and sets forth policies regarding military construction for all military branches. This bill also authorizes appropriations for Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO), which are exempt from discretionary spending limits, in the amount of $89.2 billion. Other spending authorized:

Veto message from President Obama (Oct. 7): While there are provisions in this bill that I support, this bill fails to authorize funding for our national defense in a fiscally responsible manner. It underfunds our military in the base budget, and instead relies on an irresponsible budget gimmick that has been criticized by members of both parties. Specifically, the bill's use of Overseas Contingency Operations funding--which was meant to fund wars and is not subject to budget caps--does not provide the stable, multi-year budget upon which sound defense planning depends. Because this bill authorizes base budget funding at sequestration levels, it threatens the readiness and capabilities of our military.

Legislative outcome: NDAA passed House 270-156-8 Oct. 1; passed Senate 70-27-3 Oct. 7; vetoed with no override, Oct. 22.
