Discussing yesterday’s announcement of the 16th Combat Aviation Brigade being maintained at Fort Wainwright, Sec. McHugh credited Sen. Begich for his role in pushing the decision.
Sec. McHugh said:
“You pressed that issue early and often. And I thank you for that kind of engagement. And it does help us focus on what we need to focus on, that is the strategic location, the value of what happens up
around Fort Wainwright in the great state of Alaska. I think it was a good decision and I appreciate your support in that. And we’re looking forward to a good, long, happy future in the great state of Alaska.”
