Senator Warner Awarded Defense Intelligence Director Award
Washington D.C. - December 19, 2008
In a ceremony Thursday at the Defense Intelligence Analysis Center on Bolling Air Force Base, Lt. Gen. Michael D. Maples presented the Defense Intelligence Director’s Award to Sen. John Warner (R-VA).
Retiring in January 2009, Sen. Warner is the second-ranking Republican member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the committee’s former vice chairman. He has also served as both chairman and ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and is a current member of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
The award recognizes Sen. Warner’s distinguished 30-year career as a public servant and his commitment to national defense. Throughout his tenure, the senator has visited DIA deployed elements in war zones and used DIA analysis to inform his colleagues regarding operations in Beirut, Bosnia, Panama, Kuwait, Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Global War on Terror.
Maples lauded the senator’s long history of service to the nation, dating back to his military service in World War II, and thanked him for asking hard questions.
“Thank you for this award,” said Warner. “I’m pleased to pass the mantle to a new generation, and I feel confident that with your unwavering commitment to our nation’s defense, my children and grandchildren will be protected.”
