Hoeven Statement on U.S. Air Force Anniversary

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today issued the following statement in observance of the 67th anniversary of the United States Air Force:

“The United States Air Force has defended and protected our nation for 67 years. We commend our airmen and women for the honor, integrity and courage they display in their duties and in the sacrifices they make for our safety. They represent the best of our country, and we honor their enduring commitment to defending our freedoms at home and abroad.

“The men and women stationed in Grand Forks, Fargo and Minot play a vital role in our nation’s defense. They reflect the outstanding work of the Air Force, and North Dakotans couldn’t be prouder. For the service and sacrifice of all our airmen and women, we offer our deepest thanks.”
