Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus discussed his military and political career, and his current role as the nation’s 75th secretary of the Navy. He talked about the Navy’s leadership in energy use and his plans for the Navy to use non-fossil fuel sources by 2020. He said that the future deployments of the Navy and Marines in the western Pacific and the Middle East would reduce the Marines ability to be used as a second land army. Other topics included his place in the chain of command, the procurement process for aircraft carriers, and troop reductions. Secretary Mabus also spoke about his experience in the Navy aboard the USS Little Rock, his days as the 60th governor of Mississippi, and his appointment as ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. close
