Defense secretary Hagel to visit Camp Lejeune

Posted: Updated:

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is scheduled to visit Camp Lejeune to thank Marines and their family members for their service and discuss the Pentagon's fiscal belt tightening.

Hagel is slated to visit the Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Wednesday as part of his 3-day visit to military installations along the East Coast. He visited Fort Bragg Monday and is stopping at Joint Base Charleston in South Caroling prior to coming to Camp Lejeune.

Pentagon officials say Hagel plans to meet with service members and take their questions about the recent furloughs of Pentagon employees and the ongoing budget cuts.

On Wednesday, Hagel also sees the Marine Corps infantry school, the Marine Corps Air Station at New River and visits with female Marines.
