Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel called on the U.S. Strategic Command on Friday to address “troubling lapses” in the operations of its nuclear forces and ensure the trust of the American people.
Hagel, a Nebraska native, used a change of command ceremony at Offutt Air Force Base to both scold and encourage StratCom personnel and others who maintain the nation's nuclear arsenal.
