Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was on Oahu Thursday.

He talks with service members at the Marine Corps Base Hawaii at Kaneohe Bay.

Hagel did not take questions from reporters, but did respond to enlisted service members.

He covered many topics including how the Department of Defense is dealing with budget cuts.

“How that would direct our choices. How that would direct our cuts. Consolidations as we present to the Congress a new budget early next year,” Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said.

The next stop for Hagel is a four-nation tour across Southeast Asia that runs through next week.
