WASHINGTON D.C. -- To the Airmen of the United States Air Force:
It's a huge privilege and the honor of a lifetime to serve as your 23rd Secretary of the Air Force. I want all of you to know that I will work very hard to ensure that I live up to the enormous trust that's been placed in me.
I couldn't be more proud and excited to be on the team and part of the best Air Force in the world. I want to express my appreciation and commitment to being an effective advocate for you-- our civilian, Active Duty, Guard and Reserve Airmen and your families.
Happy Holidays to each of you and your families!
Deborah Lee James
Secretary of the Air Force
