    Speech given last year by my son's French teacher at VMI to the Harvard Business School on Veterans Day last year. My son tells me that BG Farrell is one awesome teacher. I've never met him- wish I had and on my next trip down to VMI I certainly hope to. People often think that professional soldiers are really nothing more than knuckledraggers - but read this and tell me that is the case. From Tom Ricks column in Foreign Policy.
