As Delivered by Defense Secretary William J. Perry , Public Service Recognition Week observances, Pentagon, Monday, May 06, 1996

Prepared remarks for Defense Secretary William J. Perry at Public Service Recognition Week observances, Pentagon, May 6, 1996. The defense secretary manages change in the department, but that's not a one-man show. Managers and workers alike need to seize the chance to make change happen that will improve the armed forces and bolster the nation's security.
