The nation’s Defense Secretary got a first hand look at San Antonio’s military installations Wednesday.
Ash Carter visited JBSA-Lackland, Brooke Army Medical Center, and then took a flight mission over San Antonio out of JBSA-Randolph.
“So much going on here in San Antonio relevant to our force of today and our force of the future,” Carter told reporters at a briefing at Randolph AFB. “I’m committed to that and confident that our armed forces will remain what it is today, which is the best in the world.”
Carter’s department is preparing to transition from President Obama to President Trump.
“We are ready to welcome President-elect Trump’s transition team to the Defense Department,” he said.
The problem, as of now, they haven’t shown up yet.
“We have prepared for their arrival, we will welcome them warmly, we will help them to hit the road running,” he said. “They have not arrived yet in the Pentagon, they will do that when they’re ready, but we’re ready for them.”
