From Secretary Work's presentation this morning

Desert Storm was a "defining battle" for a new type of ordnance

From Secretary Work's presentation this morning

Not to nitpick, but Bob Work was DepSecDef under Obama, and Work hasn't been in office for a while.  Esper is the current SecDef.

Yes, but he retains the honorific as the highest position he had in the gov't.  Andy Card was the White House Chief of Staff under Bush 43, but he'd previously been Secretary of Transportation and retained the honorific of "Mr Secretary" even while he was CofS

I'm just trying to be accurate :)

Yeah.  As you can tell, I'm not too into titles.  Will my membership on this prestigious forum be revoked?    ;D
