One of the ways he has done this is through his work in education.

This is a critical point in young people’s lives and he has always relished the opportunity to speak at these critical and inspiring events.

Part of his message of course comes from his own long running experiences as a man of the military. He has seen the world and achieved a lot of great things in that career.
He realizes what a treasure it is to live in this country with its opportunities afforded to each individual which is above and beyond what anybody else in the world can dream to have a right to do. Each person has an opportunity to do the most they can with their lives and that moment of high school graduation is a logical point at which to emphasize that message.
