Abstract:

Todays Air Force Academy graduates will face far more dramatic changes - than I did. The Air Force itself is going through dramatic changes. One enduring principle that I have found to be a foundation in the midst of these continuing changes, something I first embraced during my doolie year at the Academy, is the inscription on the Eagle and Fledging statue outside Mitchell hall Mans Flight Through Life Is Sustained by the Power of his Knowledge. This afternoon, I want to talk to you about how the power of knowledge will sustain todays graduates and Americas armed forces in this time of accelerating change.
