I had the honor of serving with McRaven when he was my Commanding Officer at SEAL Team THREE. He’s one of the most accomplished Special Operations leaders in the history of the US Military.

I honestly believe the man could be the President of the United States one day.

Enjoy his remarks.


Remarks by Naval Adm. William H. McRaven, Ninth Commander of U.S. Special Operations Command

The University of Texas at Austin, May 17, 2014.

President Powers, Provost Fenves, Deans, members of the faculty, family and friends and most importantly, the class of 2014. Congratulations on your achievement.

It’s been almost 37 years to the day that I graduated from UT.

I remember a lot of things about that day.
