Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
I know that there are much bigger things going on in the news, but I would be remiss if I didn't mention that Arizona's own Barbara Barrett is the new secretary of the Air Force, and that's something we can all be proud of. Barbara is a woman of tremendous character and achievement, and for her to be there in Washington fighting for our air bases, the vital F-35 mission, and our servicemen and women is an incredible accomplishment.
Our state was lucky to have Sen. McCain for many years doing what needs to be done for our state's military installations. Now we have someone to continue that noble cause.
