This week, U.S. Rep. Mike Waltz, R-Fla., announced he will lead the U.S. House Armed Services Subcommittee on Readiness.

“The Subcommittee on Readiness has jurisdiction over Department of Defense policy and programs and accounts related to training, logistics and maintenance, military construction, organic industrial base, civilian and contract workforce, environment, military installations and real property management, family housing, base realignments and closures, and energy,” Waltz’s office noted.

“At such a pivotal time for our military, I am grateful for the opportunity to lead the Subcommittee on Readiness to ensure America’s warfighters are trained and equipped at superior facilities to properly address the threats facing our country,” said Waltz. “As the Chinese Communist Party marches towards global dominance, Russia increases its malign behavior, new terrorist threats emerge in the aftermath of Afghanistan, the Iranian Regime progresses towards a nuclear weapon, and so much more, I am ready to get to work to better equip our military and turn our focus away from woke priorities and back to winning wars. Our national security depends on it.”

First elected to Congress in 2018, Waltz is the first Green Beret to serve in Congress and served in Afghanistan. He previously served as an aide to then-Vice President Dick Cheney.
