WASHINGTON, D.C. – 2014 was a banner year for the National Nuclear Security Administration.
According to DOE Under Secretary for Nuclear Security and NNSA Administrator Lt. Gen. Frank G. Klotz, “Our nuclear stockpile remains safe, secure, and effective; our organization remains a global leader in activities to prevent, counter and be prepared to respond to threats of nuclear proliferation and terrorism; we continue to provide strong support to our nuclear Navy; and we are making significant progress in improving program and project management practices.”
“The women and men throughout the nuclear security enterprise made all this happen,” Klotz said. “We applaud them for their service and dedication to America’s national security. They rock.”
