"I'm proud to join the NDIA team and look forward to contributing to its mission to strengthen our nation's defense and the industrial base on which it depends," said Hallman, who will advise the organization on legislative actions and policy.
Hallman will monitor Capitol Hill on matters of concern to defense, including annual budgets, acquisition and procurement reform, and defense infrastructure.
