Well, it’s finally official.
James Mattis is our new Secretary of Defense, and he’s already proving to be exactly the leader we need in the DoD.
Sec. Mattis sent an awesome letter to all DoD employees yesterday.
This is great (via IJR):
“It’s good to be back and I’m grateful to serve alongside you as Secretary of Defense,” Mattis wrote. “Together with the Intelligence Community, we are the sentinels and guardians of our nation. We need only look to you, the uniformed and civilian members of the Department and your families, to see the fundamental unity of our country.”
The first piece of legislation President Trump signed was a bill that created an exception for Mattis to serve as SoD.
Mattis was sworn-in later that day.
