“Ambassador Barbara Barrett is the leader we need to propel the U.S. Air Force into the 21st Century,” said Senator Perdue. “Ambassador Barrett is a well-respected aeronautics expert with years of international business experience. We discussed several of our shared priorities, including the Advanced Battle Management System and U.S. Space Force. Without a doubt, Ambassador Barrett’s experience as both a pilot and astronaut will be a tremendous asset to the Department of Defense as we work to develop our capabilities and counter global threats. I am confident Ambassador Barrett will do an excellent job leading the Air Force, and she has my full support.”
