Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff is pushing his colleagues in the Senate to fully fund U.S. Army Cyber Command, headquartered at Georgia’s Ft. Gordon, in the National Defense Authorization Act.
Sen. Ossoff, a tireless advocate for Georgia’s servicemembers and military installations, launched a push to ensure that Army Cyber Command can carry out its mission protecting our national security.
“Ft. Gordon is critical to our national security, and the soldiers at U.S. Army Cyber Command are the best in their field. We must ensure they have the resources they need to continue to defend our nation, and I’m working with colleagues across the aisle to ensure the NDAA authorizes full funding for Ft. Gordon,” said Sen. Ossoff.
In February, Sen. Ossoff inspected ongoing infrastructure projects on post and received briefings at the Cyber Center for Excellence (CCoE).
In March, Sen. Ossoff secured a commitment from Shalanda Young, acting director of the Office of Management and Budget, to dedicate necessary federal resources to improving military housing at Ft. Gordon.
Earlier this month, Sen. Ossoff visited Ft. Gordon for the second time since his swearing in to meet with senior leadership and junior enlisted personnel to discuss housing on post.
