Senator Warren Announces Appointment to Armed Services Committee

Washington, DC - Today, United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) announced that she will be serving on the Senate Committee on Armed Services in the 115th Congress, subject to conference and Senate ratification.

"I'm looking forward to serving on the Senate Committee on Armed Services in the next Congress. All three of my brothers served in the military, and I understand the sacrifices America's servicemembers make to defend our country - and the important work that our Defense Department does to keep Americans safe," said Senator Warren. "As a member of the Committee, I will focus on making sure Congress provides effective support and oversight of the Armed Forces, monitors threats to national security, and ensures the responsible use of military force around the globe.

"I'm proud that Massachusetts leads the nation in innovative defense work and scientific research that helps and protects our servicemembers as they do their jobs. During my time in the Senate, I've visited bases and met with defense companies and research labs across the Commonwealth, and I've seen the critical role they play in strengthening our national security. I look forward to continuing to work closely with them as a member of the Committee."
