Jerry Hendrix, Defense Strategies and Assessments Program, CNAS

President Barack Obama's budget request included a small, $5 million item earmarked for a next-generation fighter. And while no one knows exactly what it'll be, it's meant to replace the F/A-18 Super Hornet and EA-18 Growler by 2030. Jerry Hendrix, a senior fellow and director of the Defense Strategies and Assessments Program at the Center for a New American Security, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with more on what exactly the new fighter will be capable of and why it's needed.

Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

The Pentagon has been warning for years that the decade-long budget caps Congress set in place four years ago won't work -- at least if DoD hopes to execute the defense strategy that's on the books right now. With sequestration set to return this year, officials say they'll try to make things a bit less abstract. The Pentagon publishes a report that details exactly what would happen to individual bases and weapons systems with a $30 billion cut. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu writes about DoD's sequestration messaging strategy as part of this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.

Dr. Nate Galbreath, Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office

Students at three military academies reported fewer sexual assaults during the last school year. An anonymous Pentagon survey backs that up. It shows rates of "unwanted sexual contact" are also declining. While the military struggled last year with sexual assault cases, it seems there's progress on the academic front. Dr. Nate Galbreath, Senior Executive Advisor in DoD's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain what all this might mean for the military itself.
