If you have 16 minutes, I highly recommend listening to the featured speaker from UNG's Memorial Retreat during Alumni Weekend this month. • START AT 11:16 for COL Tom Palmer's introduction of MAJ (P) Dan Kearney. MAJ Kearney was a North Georgia cadet on Sept. 11, 2001, and he was later featured in the documentary Restrepo. • START AT 14:10 if you don't need the introduction. MAJ Kearney's speech lasts for about 16 minutes. MAJ Kearney's speech is well worth the time and especially so if you have a cadet on track to earn a commission. "The will to prepare is more important than the will to succeed." "The will to prepare is what will set you apart from others. It is what will ensure your knife's edge is sharper than your enemy's."
