Secretary Chuck Hagel to Travel to U.S. Military Bases

            From July 15-17, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel will travel to Fort Bragg, N.C.; Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Fla.; Joint Base Charleston, S.C.; and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, N.C. 

            Over the course of this three-day domestic trip, Secretary Hagel will interact with service members, families, Department of Defense civilian employees, contractors, and local civic leaders in a variety of venues.  Given the significant impact budget reductions are having on uniformed and civilian personnel, Secretary Hagel believes it is critical time to visit DoD locations and hear directly from the men and women of the Department of Defense.
