U.S. Air Force Secretary James Roche has resigned, the Pentagon said in a statement Tuesday.
Roche, a 23-year Navy veteran and former Northrop Grumman Corp. executive, told Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld in early October that he planned to retire at the end of the first term of the Bush administration, the statement said. "Jim Roche has led the Air Force during an important period in history," Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said during a visit to Quito, Ecuador. "Combined with his distinguished career with the U.S. Navy, Secretary Roche has served our country capably and with honor."
