Naval War College Review


Admiral Rempt has acknowledged our VIPs, and I just want to say it’s wonderful to be here in Newport. It’s always fun to come up here and see great friends. If I started going through the honors and acknowledging all of them, it would take longer than [we have]. There are a lot of them here this morning. I’m here because I believe that this tradition, this event that we are here to observe is very important to our Navy, this thing called the change of command.
