Press Release

Washington, D.C. —Today Congressman Robert Aderholt released the following statement upon hearing the news that U.S. Space Command is coming to Redstone Arsenal.

“This decision is not only a good one for North Alabama, it’s good for America.  Locating the United States Space Command in Huntsville is smart, because it’s already the center of much of our space, military and strategic command capabilities.  It’s also located near Washington; just one hour and 15 minutes by plane.  The area also has a high quality, low cost of living for those who will be stationed here as part of of the Command.”

Our space program was born, raised and came to greatness from Alabama soil.  So, it’s only fitting that the next great incarnation of our leadership in space would be firmly planted here as well.”
