CSO Speaks at US Naval Academy
U.S. Space Force Chief of Space Operations Gen. John W. “Jay” Raymond addresses the Brigade of Midshipmen during a Forrestal lecture in Alumni Hall at the U.S. Naval Academy. Raymond described how the United States Navy’s rich history at sea and its global missions today provide apt comparisons – and guideposts – for meeting the challenges and responsibilities faced by the U.S. Space Force as it grows and matures. The Forrestal Lecture Series was established in 1970 to honor James V. Forrestal, the first Secretary of Defense. The purpose of the series is to enhance the education, awareness, and appreciation of the Brigade of Midshipmen for the social, political, and cultural dimensions of the Nation and the world.
