“Dr. Mark Esper rounds out the impressive and qualified group leading our country’s military branches,” said Senator Perdue. “With critical Army assets in my home state of Georgia, including the U.S. Army Maneuver Center of Excellence, the Army Cyber Center of Excellence, and the 3rd Infantry Division, there’s no doubt Dr. Esper and I will be working together closely. There is much to do to strengthen troop readiness and capabilities, and address future challenges. I’m confident Dr. Esper will do an excellent job leading our nation’s Army to meet ever-changing global threats.” 


Georgia is home to four U.S. Army installations: Ft. Stewart in Hinesville, Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Ft. Benning in Columbus, and Ft. Gordon in Augusta.


Senator Perdue is the only Fortune 500 CEO in Congress and is serving his first term in the United States Senate, where he represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
