FILE - In this Jan. 31, 2013 file photo, former Nebraska Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington before the Senate Armed Services Committee confirmation hearing. When President Barack Obama declared Hagel would be the first former enlisted man to lead the Pentagon, he seemed to overlook four previous defense chiefs who served at least part of their military years as enlisted men.
