Thursday Fort Bliss' new commanding general took center stage at the post to give his state of the military address.
In front of a packed house, Major General Sean MacFarland covered a wide variety of topics from how Fort Bliss soldiers are making an impact overseas to the challenges they are faced with. One thing MacFarland made clear is he does not want sequestration to continue.
"If sequestration continues we may not be able to do what is right for our national defense and we will be forced to make cuts we know are strategically unwise," said MacFarland.
