Statement on Confirmation of Mark Esper to Serve as Secretary of Defense

Written by Press Release

July 23, 2019

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement after the Senate confirmed Dr. Mark Esper to serve as Secretary of Defense:

“Washington’s top responsibility is to ensure the American people are safe from the multitude of threats our nation faces. As the nation faces challenges from near-peer competitors and escalating tensions with Iran, it is vital that this cabinet vacancy is filled by the right person.

I am confident that Mark Esper is the correct choice to lead the Defense Department, and I am pleased with the Senate’s strong vote of support.

He is a decorated combat veteran, a respected scholar and a proven leader. Dr. Esper has served with distinction throughout his decades of military service, his senior positions on Capitol Hill and his tenure as Secretary of the Army. His expertise in national security policy, deep understanding of the inner-workings of the Pentagon and the bipartisan respect he has earned from members of Congress will make him a valuable partner as we work to ensure our armed forces are ready for today’s challenges and prepared to counter tomorrow’s threats.”
