WASHINGTON, July 1, 2015 – Defense Secretary Ash Carter today wished the men and women of the Defense Department a well-deserved Independence Day holiday, and said some service members would be working worldwide July 4th to secure the country and protect citizens, allies and partners.
Carter was joined by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey during a briefing of the Pentagon press corps.
“As recent terrorist attacks overseas remind us, those who seek to harm this nation and our friends take no holiday, and neither do we in the Department of Defense,” Carter said.
