On Friday, James Mattis was sworn in as the 26th Secretary of Defense of the United States. Shortly after being sworn in, the retired four-star General delivered an address to those he will now be leading at the Pentagon and told them “it’s good to be back.” The Department of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff released images from Mattis’s first weekend on the job and his face shows just how glad he is to be given the role.

Arriving for his first full day on the job on Saturday January 21, James Mattis looked proud and excited to be back at the Pentagon.

As he got out of the car he shook hands with General Joseph Dunford, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
