After a week where the Department of Defense didn't do very much at all — the DoD spent a measly $1.8 billion the last time we checked in on them — the Pentagon is back in business, spending $7.5 billion last week and buying next-gen missiles, a new warship, and many other buys.

America — enjoy your recent purchases:
$1.5 Billion to Huntington Ingalls for a brand new warship
Up to $176 million for Alaskan Radar
$925 million to Raytheon for the next generation of missiles
$107 million buys 11 new planes for the Navy
