Statement by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel on the Passing of Delegate Ben Blaz

I was saddened to learn of the passing of former Guam Delegate and retired Marine Corps Brig. Gen. Ben Blaz. He was an exceptional and pathbreaking leader in the United States military and a strong advocate for the people of Guam in the halls of Congress. He will be missed, but his legacy of service, sacrifice, and leadership will endure.
