MINOT AIR FORCE BASE - The U.S. Secretary of Defense is touring Minot Air Force Base Wednesday.

Dr. Mark Esper will be holding a town hall-style meeting with airmen on base Wednesday afternoon.

Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., and Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., will be joining the secretary.

Part of the visit is closed off to media, but news media will get a chance to ask Dr. Esper some questions.

He's the fourth defense secretary to visit the base since 2014.
