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.

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.
