Collins Gets Sub-committee Vice Chairmanship

9th District U.S. Representative Doug Collins is now the Vice-Chair on the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa.

The House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman and Subcommittee Chairman appointed Collins to that position earlier this week. They highlighted his military commitment and time deployed in Iraq as a member of the U.S. Air Force Reserves in making the appointment.

Collins said that for six months he called Iraq home and he appreciates the opportunity to learn from his colleagues and also educate them on his experiences in the Middle East.

The Hall County Republican called the Middle East and North Africa vital to the future advancement of American foreign policy and added that he is looking forward to contributing whatever he can from his personal insight to promote a better and more secure well-being for America in the international community.
