President Trump’s proposed budget for 2020 includes $17 billion for Air Force aircraft procurement through Sept. 30, 2022, the end of that fiscal year. Overseas contingency operations (OCO) would entail:

* $287.8 million for enduring requirements, which ensure that certain overseas bases operational once combat operations cease.
* No funding to support overseas bases under the National Defense Strategy, which had been put forth by former Defense Secretary James Mattis.
