The Defense Threat Reduction Agency is beefing up its nuclear support mission to meet the expectations of DoD's 2014 Nuclear Enterprise Review. A new nuke-focused directorate will tackle oversight, investment, personnel and training, as recommended in the review. Director Kenneth Myers announced the directorate last week at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing. It'll be fully operational in just a few days.
