Rep. Brown Appointed to Naval Academy Bd. of Visitors
U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Tuesday that she has appointed Rep. Anthony G. Brown (D-Md.) to the United States Naval Academy Board of Visitors.
He will take the position held by the late Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.), who died last year.
“It is fitting that Congressman Anthony Brown will now take up Chairman Cummings’ mantle of leadership in this critical role,” Pelosi said in a statement.
“Congressman Brown has dedicated his life to defending our nation, both on the battlefield as a highly decorated U.S. Army officer and in the Congress as Vice Chair of the House Committee on Armed Services. He is a proud champion of the people of the State of Maryland, working from the State House to the U.S. House to defend their security and well-being.”
Brown will join 15 other people on the Naval Academy’s Board of Visitors. The group includes Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.).
“My 30 years serving this country in uniform have guided my public life,” Brown said in a statement. “I am honored to be appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy Board of Visitors and look forward to furthering the mission and legacy of this critical institution.”
