Lankford, Inhofe Introduce Senate Resolution Honoring General Tom Stafford
WASHINGTON, DC– US Senators James Lankford (R-OK) and Jim Inhofe (R-OK) this week introduced a Senate Resolution honoring the accomplishments and recognizing the 90th birthday of fellow Oklahoman, General Thomas P. Stafford. The resolution passed unanimously on the Senate floor today.
“Ninety years ago, Oklahoma welcomed an American pioneer in space exploration and policy,” said Lankford. “General Tom Stafford has lived a life dedicated to serving our nation, leading the United States in the Space Race, and serving in our Armed Forces, NASA, and within the executive branch of the federal government. I join my fellow Oklahomans and colleagues in celebrating and honoring General Stafford on his 90th birthday. Thank you for all your service to our nation. American leadership in space would look vastly different without your service and contributions.”
“I cannot think of a more deserving individual to be recognized than my good friend Tom,” Inhofe said. “Tom has led a life of service, advancing our world and making it a better place.
