Defense Secretary Orders Security Review Of Military Bases (Video)
In the wake of Monday's deadly shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has ordered a review of security on U.S. military bases around the world.
The review will consider physical security and access to military bases.
Earlier Tuesday, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus released a statement saying he had ordered a "rapid review" of security procedures at Navy and Marine Corps bases in the United States:
"Our Sailors, Marines, and civilians are familiar with the dangers of service, but our security is something we can never take for granted. I ordered a review of every Navy and Marine Corps base in the United States to ensure that we live up to our responsibility of taking care of our people."
Hagel laid a wreath Tuesday morning at the U.S. Navy Memorial to honor the victims of the Washington Navy Yard shooting. I've posted video of that moving tribute below:
