Inhofe Praises Senate Confirmation of Mark Esper

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) praised the Senate confirmation of Dr. Mark Esper as Secretary of the Army.

“The Army, like each branch of our military, is facing an unprecedented readiness crisis that we haven’t seen since the days of the hollow force. To modernize and rebuild our Army, we need to ensure that we have leaders like my friend, Mark Esper, who will recognize and address the readiness challenges and responsibly advance acquisition reform to ensure our Army has the best equipment available. I applaud his confirmation as Secretary of the Army, and look forward to working with him and other Secretaries of service branches to strengthen and rebuild our military.”  

Last week, Sen. Inhofe questioned Esper on Army readiness during his nomination hearing. Read more here.
