During my travels as Defense Secretary, I often traveled to Afghanistan and the neighboring countries, where I had an opportunity to spend time with our troops in the field. They are remarkable.
September 11, 2001 is a day that changed the course of America forever. On that fateful Tuesday morning, nearly 3,000 of our citizens lost their lives in a senseless act of terrorism.
All told, Indiana’s thriving but relatively quiet defense industry will continue to be a major economic engine even as the nature of warfare shifts to include untraditional threats, irregular warfare and increasingly dynamic challenges.
We are well positioned here in Indiana to take advantage of opportunities in what is really a major shift in how our nation approaches security.
