WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - President Donald Trump's administration looked to combat terrorism when it proposed a $54 billion dollar increase in defense spending.
Some of that money in the proposed budget plan released last week would go to the Air Force, including Sheppard.
The Trump administration said the Air Force "is the smallest it has been in history, to combat complex terrorist threats.'
The money would go to investments in maintenance capacity, training systems and more F-35 Joint Strike Fighters.
Colonel Donald Jolly, Sheppard AFB new 82nd Training Wing Commander, said they have to prepare for the investment increase in Air Force training.
Rep. Thornberry said he expects changes to the budget plan as it makes its way through Congress.
