Alexander Statement: Nomination of General James Peake to be Secretary of Veterans Affairs

Posted on October 30, 2007

“General James Peake has a long record of public service, and Tennesseans know him as a decorated member of the 101st Airborne Division. I look forward to hearing General Peake’s plans for maintaining and improving VA services for the 530,000 Tennessee veterans – including Tennessee’s approximately 500 wounded warriors who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan – during his confirmation process.”
