U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan has been selected as chairman of the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Readiness and Management Support.

Sullivan will oversee military readiness across each branch within the Department of Defense, including training, logistics and maintenance programs, military construction, installations and family housing issues, and defense energy and environmental programs. The subcommittee is one of seven in the Armed Services Committee. Others involve issues such as terrorism, cybersecurity, personnel, air power and sea power.

“Ensuring our service members have all of the resources, equipment and training to protect our nation against an increasingly complex and diverse array of threats remains my top priority and a top priority of the Department of Defense,” said Sullivan.

“This is an important subcommittee for our military, especially our forces in Alaska. We have made great progress on rebuilding readiness shortfalls over the last couple of years, but much more work must be done. This Congress, I look forward to finishing our service-specific readiness hearing series with a hearing on Army Readiness. I also hope to tackle other important issues including acquisition reforms, industrial base issues, and Arctic readiness.”

  1. Well it looks like I will just have to reach out to SEN Sullivan as what I do for the Army in Alaska is Logistics, Transportation, Supply and Maintenance.
