Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson, a combat Vietnam veteran and senior member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, today released the following statement endorsing Senator Chuck Hagel's nomination for Secretary of Defense.

"Senator Hagel is a combat veteran and a dedicated public servant who will make an excellent Secretary of Defense," said Thompson. "He served our country honorably as an enlisted infantryman in Vietnam and he understands what our troops on the front lines deal with every day. As a combat Vietnam veteran myself, I couldn't think of anyone better qualified for this job. After he is confirmed as our next Secretary of Defense, I will work with him to address the challenges our military faces around the world."
