In this podcast episode, we feature Robert Gates, Secretary of Defense and his speech “Final Address to the West Point Academy Cadets”. In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a transcript of this speech and secondly an overview of his life of service to the nation through the CIA and the Department of Defense. Since this episode is being released on Veterans Day in 2017, I also included a trio of short articles about Veterans Day in the U.S., Armed Forces Day in the U.K., and Memorial Day.
