To enact President Joe Biden’s expansive domestic agenda this year, Democrats have mapped out a convoluted legislative maze. The party wants to push the new president's multitrillion-dollar plans for supercharging federal infrastructure, climate change and social programs through a Congress in which they have only paper-thin majorities. GOP opposition is certain to be solid. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana)

(AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)FILE - In this June 3, 2011, file photo, the Pentagon is seen from air from Air Force One. It’s the biggest budget the Pentagon has ever seen: $700 billion. That’s far more in defense spending than America’s two nearest competitors, China and Russia, and will mean the military can for the bill for thousands more troops, more training, more ships and a lot else.

This Nov. 5, 2009 file photo shows the entrance to Fort Hood Army Base in Fort Hood, Texas, near Killeen, Texas. As much as President Donald Trump enjoys talking about winning and winners, the Confederate generals he vows will not have their names removed from U.S. military bases were not only on the losing side of rebellion against the United States, some weren't even considered good generals.

By the thousands, U.S. service members are refusing or putting off the COVID-19 vaccine, as frustrated commanders scramble to knock down internet rumors and find the right pitch that will convince troops to take the shot. Some Army units are seeing as few as a third agree to the vaccine, others are higher. (U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Anthony Nelson Jr./Department of Defense via AP)
