SASC Chairman Inhofe Statement on Secretary Wilson

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, made the following statement after Secretary Wilson announced she would be stepping down at the end of May to become president of the University of Texas El Paso:

“Secretary Wilson was a true champion for Airmen and their families. I will greatly miss the leadership and strategic perspective she brought to driving innovation and modernizing the Air Force, as well as restoring readiness and investing in the force. I valued our close working relationship—which spanned from her service in the House to her service as Secretary—and wish her the best in her next chapter. I am happy for her. The University of Texas El Paso is getting the best of the best.”
