NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE OFFICE OF U.S. SENATOR JERRY MORAN

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) was recently appointed to the U.S. Air Force Academy Board of Visitors.

“It is an honor to serve on the Air Force Academy Board of Visitors,” Sen. Moran said. “Americans are fortunate to have so many intelligent, hard-working and patriotic young men and women interested in serving our country in the Air Force. I feel privileged each year when I have the opportunity to recommend Kansans for admission to the Academy, and I’m fortunate to be in a position to make certain this institution provides the best possible education and training for the next generation. I also look forward to working with former McConnell AFB 22nd Wing Commander, Lt. Gen. Michelle D. Johnson, who is the first female superintendent of the Academy. ”

Sen. Moran was selected by his Senate colleagues based on his commitment to airmen in his home state of Kansas and all those who serve in the U.S. Air Force. The board provides the Secretary of Defense and members of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees independent advice and recommendations on matters relating to the U.S. Air Force Academy. It is comprised of 15 members – six of which are appointed by the President of the United States. The chairmen of the Senate Committee on Armed Services and the House Committee on Armed Services, or their designees, also serve on the board. Four members are designated by the Speaker of the House of Representatives. The Vice President of the United States or the President pro tempore of the Senate designates three additional members.
