Roby, Rogers to host high-ranking congressman for Maxwell-Gunter visit

Posted: Updated:

One of the top members on the House Armed Forces Committee will visit Maxwell Air Force Base next week.

It will be Congressman Mac Thornberry's first visit to the base. Rep. Mike Rogers and Rep. Martha Roby invited Thornberry to Maxwell to take a tour to find out more about what goes on there.

Thornberry says he looks forward to his visit and added that in his view Maxwell fits with the long term outlook of the military.

"I'm looking forward to getting more details about the different missions, but when you look at the things that go on at Maxwell, you look at the way the world is changing, what we'll need for the future. I think it's going to be very very important, even more important in the future," Thornberry said.

Thornberry is the vice-chairman of the House Armed Services Committee.

Roby and Rogers will be with Thornberry when he tours Maxwell Monday.
