WASHINGTON -- Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-01), Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Seapower and Projection Forces, today released the following statement on the announcement of Heather Wilson as President Donald Trump's selection for Secretary of the Air Force.

"Ms. Wilson's impressive record of military and public service make her an ideal candidate to lead our nation's Air Force. She will assume this new role at a time when America and our interests are being threatened abroad and it is critical we use our projection forces, the Air Force especially, to support our allies and deter our adversaries. Having served with Heather in the House, I look forward to building upon that strong foundation in working with her as the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee begins its critical work in 2017, especially as we work to introduce the B-21 Long Range Strike Bomber and the KC-46 to the Force and as we re-capitalize our tactical airlift capability with the C-130J.”

Congressman Rob Wittman represents the 1st District of Virginia. He serves on the House Natural Resources Committee and the House Armed Services Committee, where he is the Chairman of the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee.
