Only three people have held the position of Secretary of Homeland Security, and today, all three joined together to celebrate and reflect on our Department's history. In front of a packed audience at Georgetown University, Secretary Napolitano joined her predecessors, former Secretaries Tom Ridge and Michael Chertoff, in a conversation about the Department’s ongoing efforts to protect our nation, and the challenges we face as we continue to  prepare for, prevent, respond to, and recover from terrorism and other threats.
