The House Military Affairs Study Committee, the committee I chair, visited Dobbins Air Reserve Base (ARB) last week in continuation of our mission to visit Georgia’s nine military installations. Congressman Barry Loudermilk attended the committee meeting in support of our efforts to protect Georgia’s bases.
Our common defense is the government’s greatest obligation. That is why Speaker of the House David Ralston (R-Blue Ridge) appointed me as the chairman of the new House Military Affairs Study Committee, a committee that looks at ways we can improve the military value of Georgia’s bases. The committee’s fourth meeting was held at Fort Gordon in Augusta, and Congressmen Jody Hice and Rick Allen joined us in support of our efforts to protect Georgia’s bases.
National defense is our government’s greatest responsibility, which is why I am grateful the new study committee I Chair is bringing together members of congress, state legislators and local leaders across the state to study how we can improve the military value of all nine of Georgia’s bases.
