    WASHINGTON, June 01, 2016 — Fort Huachuca’s premier training in electronic warfare, intelligence and cyber make possible the central disciplines of the world’s future in a joint-force environment where “we can do it all,” Defense Secretary Ash Carter told troops at the Arizona fort yesterday.

    The secretary stopped to visit with troops and learn about initiatives from leaders there as he was en route to Singapore, where he will lead the U.S. delegation to the 15th Asia Security Summit at the annual Shangri-La Dialogue.

    Carter called the home of the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence and the hub of Army activity in cybersecurity and remotely piloted vehicles a “huge treasure” for the Defense Department.

    “It's the fulcrum of everything that is happening to us and with us as we move from an exclusive focus on [counterinsurgency] to a more full-spectrum outlook,” he said. “Today in the department [as] … we're moving strategically [and] technologically, you are at the center of it.”
