Defense leaders come to Western Virginia

The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Richard Myers, and the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Senator John Warner, both were in Western Virginia yesterday to deliver commencement addresses at VMI and Emory & Henry College, respectively, as reported here and here by the AP.

Also, the Roanoke paper had this account ("VMI graduate accepts charge to serve," 5/16/04) of General Myers' speech at VMI, and this account ("Sen. Warner vows to find Iraq abusers," 5/16/04)of Senator Warner's remarks at Emory & Henry, while the Richmond paper had this story ("Joint Chiefs leader tells VMI grads that 'there's never been a more important time to serve'," 5/16/04)on General Myers and this story ("War and honor greet Va. graduates," 5/16/04)on Senator Warner.
