While visiting Ford Motor Company's research division, Aug. 27, Under Secretary of the Army Joseph W. Westphal and Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan met with Ford executives to discuss the Army's drive towards energy efficiency. During the Aug. 26-27 visit to Detroit, Westphal and Levin visited General Motors, the Army's Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center and Ford Motor Company.
