Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, made the following statement upon the nomination of Sen. Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense:

"The responsibilities of the Secretary of Defense are as heavy as they are sacred. Our nation's security and the well-being of our troops demand the most serious national security professional at the helm. If confirmed, it is my sincere hope that Senator Hagel values and honors the longstanding relationship between Congress and the Pentagon. I wish him luck as he endeavors to match the important burden required by the office of Secretary."
