WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and Chairman of the Subcommittee on Personnel, issued the following statement:


“Jim Mattis is the definition of an American Patriot. From his enlistment in the Marine Corps to his service as Secretary of Defense, he has always served our nation with honor and integrity. He has helped transform the Pentagon over the last two years, prioritizing the personnel, training, readiness, and modernization of our Armed Forces. America is safer and more secure today than it was at the beginning of his tenure because of his tremendous leadership, and I am grateful for his service to our nation.”
