“Congressman John McHugh is a true American patriot who will continue serving our nation with honor and distinction as the next Secretary of the Army. Through his leadership on the House Armed Services Committee, to his tireless commitment to Fort Drum and the families of America’s courageous men and women in uniform, John McHugh will ensure that the professionalism, valor and skill of our Army remains the envy of the entire world. I commend the President for making such a wise choice in naming John McHugh to this prestigious leadership position.”
