Secretary of the Army visits ‘Heavy Metal’ brigade

Secretary John McHugh, the 21st secretary of the Army, answers questions during a press conference, while visiting 2nd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, during Network Integration Evaluation 12.2 on Fort Bliss, Texas, May 9. Secretary McHugh toured the NIE, a soldier-led evaluation process that tests network and non-network equipment in a robust operational environment. “This is one of the most important things, strategically, that this Army has taken up in recent years,” he said about NIE. Not only does NIE save money for the taxpayers, but it ensures soldiers receive only the best equipment possible, he added. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Edward A.
