GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) -- Montana's congressional delegation has asked President
 Barack Obama to appoint Lt. Gov. John Walsh to a panel that will make recommendations
 on the future of the Air Force.
   Congress created the National Commission on the Structure of the Air Force in
 January.
   On Thursday, Democratic Sens. Max Baucus and Jon Tester and Republican Rep.
Steve Daines sent a letter to Obama saying that Walsh is an ideal candidate for
the commission because of his experience and relationships with military
and civilian leaders.
   Walsh was Montana's adjutant general before joining Gov. Steve Bullock's
campaign. He retired as a brigadier general after more than 30 years in the Army
National Guard.
   The panel will be composed of four members appointed by the president and four
members appointed by congressional leaders.
