U.S. defense chief announces reforms aimed at strengthening military

U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced reforms to the Defense Department’s personnel policies on Wednesday aimed at attracting tech talent and improving the recruitment and retention of troops and civilians. Carter said he wanted to create more “on-ramps” for those outside the Defense Department to join even for short periods of time. A new chief recruiting officer will headhunt for executives to fill top civilian roles in the department, Carter said.
