A Colonel Speaks.

I have a nephew who is just about finished with basic training in the Army. I am very proud of him, though he doesn't know it . . . yet.

Gawfer has a link to a video of a graduation speech at the same camp my nephew is at and it is a moving and brilliant speech. I wish every college professor, high school teacher, journalist, and entertainer in this country could hear it. Sadly the "Blame America First" crowd would probably either miss the point or hold him in contempt as an ignorant soldier, which he clearly is not.

Watch the video.

Ok, I am having problems linking directly to the posting. The title of the post is LTC Randolph C. White Jr. Delivers Infantry Graduation Speech
