Gen. Joseph L. Lengyel, the chief of the National Guard Bureau, told lawmakers last week that the cost of deploying Guardsmen to the nation’s border with Mexico is impossible to guess this early in the mission.
“I really couldn’t hazard a guess yet on the total cost of this operation,” Lengyel told members of the Senate Appropriations Committee one week ago, according to Military Times.
