It is my privilege and great pleasure to inform you that VADM Rogers' nomination for appointment to the rank of Admiral and assignment as Commander, U.S. Cyber Command and as Director, National Security Agency was confirmed by the Senate yesterday. This is not only a testament to Admiral Rogers' unparalleled leadership and professional qualifications; it is a profound expression of faith by the nation's political leaders in his personal ability. Moreover, yesterday was an historic moment for the Information Dominance Corps. Not since ADM Bill Studeman's tenure as Deputy Director of the CIA in the 1990s have the communities comprising the current IDC had a flag officer who achieved a fourth star.
Please join me in congratulating Admiral Rogers on this well-earned and well-deserved career accomplishment!
