Much of the debate about the Pentagon's budget situation revolves around readiness. The Joint Chiefs of Staff are expected to use the word and the concept many times when they testify to the Senate Armed Services Committee tomorrow. Readiness was today's topic on Pentagon Solutions today. Every Wednesday at 4 p.m., we look at the critical issues the Defense Department is facing and look for potential solutions to those challenges from voices both inside and outside the building. Retired Adm. John Harvey, former commander of the Fleet Forces Command, joined Francis Rose.
