Character and courage still are the “indispensible requisites of both life and leadership,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told the graduates of the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y., during his commencement speech, May 25, 2013. Hagel noted that his time in the Army forever shaped him. “You’ve made a courageous decision to offer yourself for a very purposeful life,” he said.
