Chairman Mike Turner (OH-10) of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces hosted House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry (TX-13) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base today.

“I want to thank Chairman Thornberry for coming to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to tour the facility and see the work that’s done here that’s critical to the mission of the Air Force,” said Chairman Turner. “I greatly appreciate his leadership in national security issues ranging from acquisition reform to cyber to emerging threats. Chairman Thornberry and I will continue to fight for funding in the National Defense Authorization Act to meet the needs of our men and women in uniform.”

“I appreciate Chairman Turner’s invitation to visit Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and get an update on the important role it plays in the readiness of our military,” said Chairman Thornberry. “Mike has been a leader in highlighting the importance of addressing the gaps in our military’s readiness, the need to increase the resources available to our service members to complete their missions, and a strong advocate for the work being done at Wright-Patterson. I enjoyed visiting the base and seeing what they are doing to support the men and women who protect our country.”
