Defense chief Hagel to visit Maine’s BIW Thursday
BATH, Maine (AP) — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel will visit to Maine’s Bath Iron Works on Thursday.
The shipyard says Hagel will tour the newest destroyer, the DDG-1000, that’s in the water but remains under construction. He’ll also deliver remarks to shipbuilders.
Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King extended the invitation. Hagel will stop in Maine before heading to Nova Scotia for a security conference between Nov. 22 and 25.
