Chuck Hagel may have irked some Nebraska Republicans last fall, but that wasn't on display Wednesday as he basked in a warm welcome on his first trip back home as the nation's defense secretary.
Hagel received plenty of accolades from an audience of about 300 after he delivered a 40-minute speech and took a few questions at the University of Nebraska at Omaha — his alma mater.
