SECDEF Statement on Passing of President Reagan

President Ronald Reagan's resolve in the defense of freedom helped to change the course of modern history. Among his many legacies, he restored America's pride in the men and women who wear the military uniform. This modest man of good humor had the conviction and personal courage to provide our nation and the free world with directional leadership at a time when it was so sorely needed.

My thoughts and prayers are with Nancy and the Reagan family.
