Donley to Step Down as Air Force Secretary
April 26, 2013
Air Force Secretary Michael Donley will be stepping down from the service's top spot in June, ending a nearly five year run as the Air Force's top civilian.
"It's been an honor and a privilege to serve with our Air Force's great Airmen," Donley said in a service statement issued Friday. "Their accomplishments have been nothing short of impressive, and I'm humbled to be a part of this team.
Set to leave the Pentagon on June 21, Donley will likely stay on to shepherd the service's fiscal year 2014 budget proposal as it moves through the House and Senate defense panels.
