House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard “Buck” McKeon (R-Calif.) will discuss President Obama's Afghanistan withdrawal plans at a National Press Club luncheon on Monday, Feb. 24. The chairmanship of the House Armed Services Committee, which provides authorization and oversight of the Defense Department and its nearly $500 billion budget, is considered one of Congress' most influential positions. A staunch advocate of robust defense spending, McKeon announced in January he would not seek reelection in 2014 after 21 years on Capitol Hill.

Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m., with remarks beginning at 1 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session ending at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $22 for Press Club members (NPC Members may purchase two tickets at this rate) and $36 for all other non-member tickets.
