WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, congratulates former Congresswoman, Dr. Heather Wilson, on being confirmed as the next Air Force Secretary:

“As an Air Force veteran and former Congresswoman, Dr. Wilson is qualified and well-poised to hit the ground running as our next Air Force Secretary,” said Senator Perdue. “Dr. Wilson and I have discussed in detail some of the Air Force’s most pressing challenges, including impending capability gaps for our most vital platforms. Not only does she understand the need to address these gaps, but she also has the experience to do something about them. I am confident Dr. Wilson will do an excellent job leading our nation’s Air Force and I was proud to support her confirmation today.”
