US Army: A view from the top
Major General Paul Lima, US Army Ret. addressed "US Army as it stands today." Lima described the reduction of U.S. troops across the globe and what he perceived as its detrimental impact. He said training, disaster relief and emergency response measures were also being threatened. The Major General has served in uniform for more than 40 years. He urged Rotarians to show support of the nation’s armed forces and the Department of Defense. He said as an active soldier in the Pentagon on 9/11, “I understand how a global war on terrorism was necessary.” He told Rotarians to “ask God to protect our armed forces and to bless this great nation.”
