US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel shakes hands with Army Chief of Staff General Raymond Odierno after speaking to service members and civilian employees during his first day at the Pentagon in Washington, DC, February 27, 2013. Hagel was sworn in Wednesday after a divisive Senate debate over his nomination that signals a rocky road ahead as he tackles deep budget cuts and frayed ties with Congress. Hagel, 66, took his oath of office at about 8:30 am (1330 GMT) at the Pentagon as his wife looked on, becoming the first combat veteran from the Vietnam conflict to take up the post.
