MilblogConf 2011: Rumsfeld on veterans serving in Congress

When asked about military veterans considering serving in Congress, Sec Rumsfeld referenced what he considered a very inspiring address by Adlai Stevenson's address to his senior class banquet at Princeton in 1954.

A .pdf of the speech is on his website.

2011 Milblog Conference

Kicking off with former Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, taking questions from the "irreverent" Milblog community :-) Offered a interesting comparison between how info was shared from deployed forces to the home front when he was a naval officer. Very different.

He's as candid and irreverent as the crowd I think, which is part of his appeal.
