Alabama New Home For U. S. Space Command

ROGERS ON ALABAMA AS NEW HOME FOR U.S. SPACE COMMAND

Congressman Mike Rogers made the following statement regarding the expected decision to make Alabama new home of U.S. Space Command.

“I applaud the decision by the Air Force to select Redstone Arsenal as the new home of the U.S. Space Command. Alabama has long been home to our nation’s premiere defense and civilian space assets.

This decision by the Air Force makes sense given all the equities in Alabama. Defending our country against threats from our enemies takes a national effort. I am proud of the role Alabama plays in this overall effort.”

Rogers serves as Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee.
