President Harris Moffatt III's Secretary of Defense was one of Moffatt's two most important advisers, the other being the Secretary of Alien Affairs. When the Krolp demanded access to U.S. territory to mine for silver, Moffatt met with both secretaries to decide how to proceed. The Secretary of Defense was critical in formulating and overseeing the USA's final, failed uprising against the Krolp. The Secretary's second cousin worked for the Krolp, but didn't like them at all, and was able to network with like-minded people to help cause chaos behind Krolp lines.

The Secretary of Defense was initially optimistic about the USA's chances, as the Krolp did tend to underestimate humans. Moffatt privately doubted that it would matter. History proved Moffat correct.
