Secretary of Defense, former Marine Corps General and Richland native (born in Pullman) James Mattis spent some time with Kennewick Police today. When it comes to leadership and service, there is no single person stronger, better or more knowledgeable. Those that know him best called him CHAOS for Commander Has Another Solution according to Wikipedia. He always made sure his troops were well read in the culture of the area they were deployed and sensitive to their history. The man is a genius and I'm so proud he's part of where I live.
