It is terrific to see so many members of the extended Perry family here today, particularly from his home state of Pennsylvania. Those who know Bill recognize that he has a severe case of incurable modesty.
Let me share a few examples that I have personally observed. After the Cuban Missile Crisis, Bill knew that we had to take steps to strengthen our defenses and protect our national security while also preventing a nuclear war from occurring. Bill led the way in increasing our conventional and technological capabilities as a way to deter aggression while reducing our reliance on nuclear weapons.
As Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering in the Carter administration, Bill did more to achieve that goal than any single individual in the last 50 years.
Fast-forward to the early s. Bill was back out in California, engaged in successful private-sector leadership. In early , just after Congressional passage of the Nunn-Lugar legislation, which was designed to help the former Soviet states secure and eliminate their vast nuclear arsenals left scattered across what had been the Soviet empire, Bill joined then-Senator Dick Lugar, now-Secretary of Defense Ash Carter, David Hamburg who is with us this afternoon and me on a trip to Russia and Ukraine.
Our purpose was to assess the nature of the risks posed by the tens of thousands of tons of vulnerable nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and materials and to explore how best to implement the Nunn-Lugar legislation. Bill immediately connected the dots: desperate financial conditions, demoralized military forces, weapons and materials of mass destruction, and the threat of catastrophic terrorism and nuclear proliferation — a perfect storm.
