Congressman Turner and Congressman Tiberi toured Wright-Patterson Air Force Base this morning. This tour comes after Congressman Turner hosted the first Ohio Defense Forum in Columbus emphasizing the importance of strengthening Ohio’s defense installations and the communities that house them.
“I would like to thank Congressman Tiberi for joining me today at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Ohio has 9 military installations and offers a wide array of capabilities, which further demonstrates the breadth of Ohio’s military presence. As the defense community battles budget cuts and possible BRAC, we must work together at the federal and state level in Ohio to ensure our men and women are equipped with the best resources to complete the mission.”
“It is an honor to work with the Ohio delegation to support Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. It is vitally important that we ensure our service members have the resources they need to carry out their mission and keep our nation safe and secure. That is why I am so pleased to have a representative in this region like Congressman Mike Turner. He has worked tirelessly to highlight Ohio’s role in building our defense industry, and I sincerely thank him for his leadership. With his help, we will continue to work with key stakeholders in central Ohio and across the state to take advantage of all available opportunities to keep the defense community strong.”
