Secretary of Defense Dr. Mark T. Esper will travel to Whiteman AFB tomorrow, July 22, where he will receive a briefing on how the crews of our most visible strategic defense assets — the B-2 bomber — are staying safe and ready during the COVID outbreak.

While there, Secretary Esper will meet with airmen to discuss diversity and inclusion in the ranks — as he has done at DOD installations around the world in the last month.
