Patrick Murphy, undersecretary and acting secretary of the U.S. Army, discussed the service branch’s priorities with a group of students, staff and faculty members at the Army War College in Pennsylvania during a forum held May 6 in the school’s Bliss Hall auditorium.

He told his audience that commissioned Army officers face a new norm for budgeting and a new kind of ground combat, according to an article published May 6 on the Army website.

Murphy noted the service branch has experienced up to 39 percent reduction in its budget since he left Congress in 2011 as Democratic member of the House and representative of Pennsylvania’s eight district.

He also urged military leaders to communicate with their organizations’ uniformed and civilian personnel as well as leverage the ideas of U.S. and international students at the Army War College.
