Sullivan Hosts Army Chief of Staff at JBER To Review 4-25 Troops

ANCHORAGE, AK – Earlier this week, at the invitation of U.S. Senator Dan Sullivan (R-AK), U.S. Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley travelled to Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson (JBER) to review the 4-25 Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT).  During his visit, General Milley and Senator Sullivan spoke with soldiers and senior leaders of Alaska’s 4-25, hearing their concerns and answering their questions. General Milley and Senator Sullivan also continued their ongoing discussion on the status of the 4-25 and toured some of Alaska's robust training lands near JBER.

“I was honored that General Milley took me up on my invitation to visit Alaska and review the 4-25,” said Senator Sullivan. “During his visit to JBER, he saw firsthand Alaska’s Arctic tough warriors, heard about our warm, military-friendly communities, and visited some of our amazing training lands. I believe that this visit helped General Milley gain a more robust understanding of how well-trained our forces are in Alaska, and how the location of these highly trained Arctic warriors positions our nation’s military to rapidly respond to threats in the Asia Pacific, the Arctic, Europe, and the rest of the world.  I will continue to aggressively fight on this critically important national security issue."

Next week, Senator Sullivan will travel to Fort Polk, Louisiana, to visit the 4-25 IBCT as they participate in a three-week, brigade-size, capstone training exercise at the Joint Readiness Training Center.
