The DOD announced that the Pentagon will restore $2.2 billion to military construction projects that were stripped by the Trump administration to pay for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The money will go to 66 projects in 16 countries, 11 U.S. states, and three U.S. territories in fiscal 2021. Among those is $79 million for an elementary school for children of military personnel in Germany, $94 million for another such school in Japan, $50 million for a Marine Corps machine gun range in Guam, $10 million for a missile field expansion at Fort Greely, Alaska, as well as numerous other schools, hangars, housing, shops and facilities. The Biden administration in late April announced it would cancel border wall projects that had been funded through the DOD and return the funds to the military construction projects from which they were pulled during the Trump administration.
