Wendy MilesMessage from the President

Our local economy is stronger than most, thanks to the Navy's stable and continued presence. For 64 years, Puget Sound Naval Bases Association (PSNBA) has advocated for military contracts, shipyard work, and on-base resources to support our region's military. Thanks in large part to Congressman Norm Dicks, these efforts have come to fruition.
 
Throughout his tenure in the House, Dicks has supported all branches of our military and is intimately familiar with challenges and successes that accompany our armed forces. He has been instrumental in ensuring PSNBA has access to Navy Leadership and congressional leaders during our annual visit to Washington, DC. He does this because he strongly believes in our armed forces and understands the importance of efficient and effective operations. 
 
With his potential promotion to Chair of the Defense Appropriations Committee, we can be sure he will continue his support and advocacy for our military. His role as Chair ensures our military will continue to get the resources needed, while being committed to reducing waste and excess spending in military operations. 
 
We cannot think of a better leader or representative to serve as Chair of the Defense Appropriations Committee. On behalf of our membership, thank you Norm, for all that you do - for our community and our military. 

Wendy Miles, M.A.
President
