John McHugh, who became the 21st Army secretary in September, met some basic training Soldiers during his visit to Fort Benning. "I came away with a great sense of how it is that we field such terrific Soldiers. The training that's occurring here (and) the leadership is just exemplary," he said. "If it weren't for places like Fort Benning, the United States Army could never be what it is - and that is the greatest fighting force the world has ever known."
