Waltz Statement on the Passing of Secretary Rumsfeld

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Wednesday, U.S. Congressman Mike Waltz (FL-6) released the following statement on the passing of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld:

“America will never forget its Secretary of Defense who ran to the burning Pentagon on September 11th to help others in need,” said Rep. Waltz. “Donald Rumsfeld was a patriot who served his country in uniform, in the halls of Congress, as U.S. Ambassador to NATO, White House Chief of Staff, and as Secretary of Defense under two administrations. I take great pride in having worked as a policy advisor for Afghanistan in the Pentagon under his leadership. He was dedicated to ensuring our military was ready in times of peace and keeping our country safe in times of war. Rest in Peace.”
