ARLINGTON, VA, -- An Air Force major general fainted on Tuesday at the Pentagon briefing.

Maj. Gen. James F. Martin Jr. was talking about the Air Force budget before fainting right at the podium.

He was taken to another room, and then later to a hospital as a precaution.

No word yet on the general's condition but he appears to be OK.
