Ask yourself every day, did I do something today that helps the warfighter to win if called upon in conflict?”

— Congressman Rob Wittman

NORFOLK, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, June 12, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Congressman Rob Whitman (VA-01), Vice Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and Chairman of the Tactical Air and Land Forces Subcommittee, provided the Congressional Keynote Address at the 2024 Navy Contracting Summit, held yesterday and today at the Norfolk Hilton Main in Norfolk, Virginia.

Congressman Wittman criticized Congressional continuing resolutions and long process-driven military acquisitions. He called on a new acquisitions process which will get new technology to the warfighter quickly. And Congressman Wittman also urged the building of 3 new submarines per year. In a hard-hitting speech, Wittman spoke to the Summit audience of Navy officials and business leaders, “Ask yourself every day, did I do something today that helps the warfighter to win if called upon in conflict or to do things to deter our adversaries? Did I do things today in general that lets the adversary know that we are serious about this and that we are doing everything we can to make sure they look at the scenario and say we can’t win there and therefore we are not going to enter into conflict.”
