Inhofe Commends Nomination of General Brown as Air Force Chief of Staff

U.S.
Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), chairman of the
Senate Armed Services Committee, today released the following statement after
Secretary of Defense Mark Esper’s announced that President Trump has nominated
Gen. Charles Q. Brown, Jr. to be the next Air Force Chief of Staff:

“Congratulations
to Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. on his historic nomination to be Chief of Staff of
the U.S. Air Force. Over the course of his 37-year career, he has completed multiple
combat tours across the world, is currently serving as commander of Pacific
Air Forces in the INDOPACOM theater, and has accumulated more than 2,900 flight
hours. While I have a few thousand more flight hours myself, I look forward to
reviewing his nomination and discussing efforts to grow and modernize our Air
Force and ensure we are recruiting and retaining pilots to fill our pilot
shortage.

“I
also want to thank Gen. Goldfein for his dedicated service as the 21st Chief of
Staff of the U.S. Air Force. During his tenure, I was honored to work with him
on several shared priorities—including privatized housing reform, creation of
Space Force and the implementation of the National Defense Strategy. I wish him
the best.”
