Rep. Duncan Hunter: Put 'Warrior Culture' Back in Military

Fox News

Rep. Duncan Hunter, who is being eyed for a top-level post by President-elect Donald Trump, says he wants to instill a "warrior culture" back in the military after eight years of Democratic control at the Pentagon.

"I'm excited about a warrior culture, a warrior mentality put back into the (military), as opposed to a corporate culture ruled over by the bureaucrats and lawyers," Hunter, who serves on the House Armed Services Committee, told the San Diego Union-Tribune.

"The warrior culture is going to get infused … It's probably going to take a while because a lot of guys who had that mentality are no longer there, but maybe people's true colors can show now, a little bit."

The California Republican, a strong Trump supporter, told Fox News Wednesday he is interested in the deputy secretary of defense job.

"As deputy secretary of defense, you can get some stuff done, knock some heads together at the Pentagon … infuse it with the warrior culture again and get us back to fighting and winning wars instead of playing tiddlywinks with the lawyers and bureaucrats" he said.

Hunter, a former Marine, who now is in the reserves, told Fox News he would accept a post in the Trump administration as long as he can get things done.

"If I could be effective, then I would take it. If I can't be as effective as I can be in Congress, then I would probably say no," Hunter said.
