Dunford Speaks Urges West Point Graduates to Embrace Change PDF Print E-mail
The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff urged graduating cadets at the U.S. Military Academy on Saturday to "embrace the constant changes" facing the military as the best route to success.

Gen. Joseph Dunford, the nation's highest-ranking military officer, said armies that are slow to adapt to changes often find themselves on the wrong side of history.

"There's no substitute for taking a clear-eyed look at the threats we'll face and asking how our force will adapt to meet those threats," said Dunford, who became chairman in October 2015. "To be successful, you have to anticipate and embrace the constant changes."

He urged the almost 950 West Point cadets who were commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army during the ceremony at the academy's football stadium to challenge themselves to be the kind of leaders who continually thinks about change, especially in a world where "the pace of change and the speed of war has greatly accelerated."
