Army secretary brings combat experience to Pentagon: Less than a month ago, on Nov. 20, Dr. Mark T. Esper was sworn in as the Army’s 23rd secretary.

Esper grew up in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, south of Pittsburgh, and first donned an Army uniform in 1982, when he entered the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York.

“It was probably more of a calling than anything,” he said of his choice to join the service.

Short of a few uncles who had been drafted during Vietnam, Esper said he really had no immediate military influence in his family.
