Summary
Increasingly, the military leaders of America are called upon to function - and function knowledgeably - in areas that are beyond the purely military. This classic episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series shows how "soldier statesmen" is an apt description of their broadened role in serving their country. This video from the National Archives and Records Administration features narration from President John F. Kennedy, through recorded excerpts of the speech he delivered before the West Point graduating class of 1962.
