WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Chuck Hagel, a decorated Vietnam veteran, swore in as the U.S. defense secretary at a small, closed-door ceremony on Wednesday, after a bruising confirmation battle in the Senate.

Hagel will address Pentagon employees at 10:30 a.m. EST. He was confirmed by the Senate on Tuesday in the closest vote ever for a defense secretary, with just four Republicans voting for him. (Reporting by Phil Stewart)
