While at RAF Mildenhall, the Acting Secretary met with U.S. military leaders regarding the U.S. participation in the UK's 2021 deployment of HMS Queen Elizabeth Carrier Strike Group, presented Secretary of Defense Maintenance Effectiveness Awards, met with service members and observed Special Operations aviation capabilities and platforms.
