Congressman Turner, Chairman of the Tactical Air and Land Forces Subcommittee of the House Armed Services Committee, hosted the first Ohio Defense Forum in Columbus, Ohio. The two-day forum closed this afternoon after hosting defense industry professionals from across the state:

“Over the last two days, we were able to share ideas and discuss how we can strengthen Ohio’s defense communities and address the issue of readiness across the military. The ongoing partnership between government, military, and the defense industry is absolutely critical. I would like to thank everyone who attended and all those who helped to make this event possible and an incredible success.” 

The second and final day of The Ohio Defense Forum came to a close this afternoon. The panels for the second day covered the state of defense and how we can prepare for the future, the importance of building state and regional defense communities and garnering community support for Ohio’s military installations.  For more information, please visit the Ohio Defense Forum website.
