McHugh visits Service members at Joint Task Force Guantanamo PDF Print E-mail

Describing their unique mission as often misunderstood and certainly under-appreciated, Secretary of the Army John McHugh met with Soldiers who comprise the guard force at the detention facilities at Joint Task Force Guantanamo, Cuba, or JTF-GTMO, Feb. 9.

This was McHugh's second trip to GTMO, although it was his first as Army secretary. McHugh said the last time he was on the island -- located just 90 miles from the U.S. mainland -- was more than 20 years ago when he was a U.S. Congressman from New York. That was long before the JTF was established.
