On February 27, during a ceremony at the Pentagon, former Senator Chuck
Hagel was sworn in as the 24th Secretary of Defense, replacing Leon Panetta.
Hagel was confirmed a day earlier by the Senate after weeks of debate. Visit the Defense.gov special here: http://www.defense.gov/home/features/2013/0213_hagel-welcome/
By the end of 2013, the Department of Defense will have to cut $47 billion
from it's fiscal year 2013 budget, due to sequestration. The impact of the
cuts began earlier this year with the anticipation of sequester causing the
services to make changes. Fortunately, service members pay WILL NOT be
affected. For more news on the sequestration visit: http://www.defense.gov/home/features/2013/0213_sequestration/
As the Department of Defense looks to the future of Social Media and new
formats, "Inside the DoD" will be on a temporary hiatus. For our loyal
listeners, fear not, we shall return.

produce videos for you and your input to our process is valuable, so let us
know how we are doing by writing newmedia [at] dma.mil or by dropping us a line on Facebook or Twitter. facebook.com/dodlive and @DoDLiveMil
