American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON, Jul. 12, 2013 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., according to a Defense Department news release.
Over the course of this three-day domestic trip, 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, Hagel believes it is a critical time to visit DOD locations and hear directly from the men and women of the Department of Defense.
