TRANSCRIPT: Press briefing by Army Pacific Commander Lt Gen Wiercinski at the #Pentagon

LT. GEN. WIERCINSKI: Well, the people are there. The equipment is there. It's the ability now to utilize that equipment, to maintain that equipment to standards that is where we'll feel the most heat. Our ability to train with that equipment to fuel our vehicles, to fuel our aircraft, that is where we will feel some of the impacts of this in some of our units. We want to make sure that the maintenance of our equipment, although we're not going to be able to raise it to the highest standard we want, we want to make sure that we're keeping our equipment to a standard, obviously safe and operational so that when things return to a normal state we can bring them back up to the highest level quickly, and not fall over that edge where we cannot bring it back.
