Happy Monday and welcome to Overnight Defense. I’m Rebecca Kheel, and here’s your nightly guide to the latest developments at the Pentagon, on Capitol Hill and beyond. CLICK HERE to subscribe to the newsletter.
 THE TOPLINE: We now have the detailed breakdown of where the Pentagon finding $1.5 billion to pay for President Trump’s border wall.
Among the dollars in the transfer announced Friday are funds originally meant to upgrade Air Force surveillance planes and an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) system, according to Pentagon budget documents.
Also, as previously reported, millions are being taken from a fund meant to help build up Afghan forces.

Here are the specifics:

— $604 million from the Afghan Security Forces Fund, meant to assist the Afghan military
— $77.5 million from the Coalition Support Fund (CSF), used to reimburse coalition partners for support to U.S. military operations.
— $24.3 million from the Air Force’s Minuteman III ICBM program, which needs updates to its launch control center. The document said the funds were available due to a “slip in the production schedule.”
— $52.6 million from savings negotiated on air-launch cruise missiles and Predator Hellfire missiles
— $57 million meant for upgrading the E-3 Sentry, an airborne early warning and control aircraft. The money was available due to “schedule delays,” according to the document.
— $209.7 million designated for an Air Force space vehicle launch. The next launch isn’t scheduled until after a 24-month planning period, according to the document.
— $223.8 million from the Pentagon’s Blended Retirement System, which launched in January 2018 and had “fewer than planned opt-ins from the legacy retirement system.”
— $251 million from a program to destroy chemical agents and munitions.
Reminder: Recall that the $1.5 billion approved last week is in addition to $1 billion approved in March. That $1 billion was moved from Army personnel funds to Pentagon counter-drug funds and then to the wall fund.
And both of these transfers are separate from the $3.6 billion the administration has said it plans
