What could Saddam Hussein, Somali pirates, Osama Bin Laden, and Captain Richard Phillips possibly have in common? A U.S. Navy Admiral, of course. And why would President Obama decide to give this departing Admiral a tape measure as a gift?

To find out the answers to these and other questions, please join the Institute of Politics as we welcome Admiral Bill McRaven (USN ret.), the former commander of United States Special Operations Command, Navy SEAL, and author of the #1 New York Times best-selling memoir Make Your Bed. Moderated by Brig. General Dana Born (USAF ret.), the conversation will focus on public service, leadership, national security, military non-partisanship, and the new challenges and opportunities younger generations must confront in our globalized society. IOP student leader and JFK Jr. Forum student committee member Ryan Tierney '24 will provide the introduction.

RSVP here to join the conversation in the virtual JFK Jr. Forum.
