My NCOA 18-4 Graduation Speech

Posted by

BLUF – “Don’t forget where you came from, and don’t forget who got you there.”

The following speech was delivered at an NCO Academy graduation I was invited to. Normally the guest speaker is a senior enlisted leader, so needless to say I was honored and nervous about not screwing this up. About two weeks prior I had the idea to share some advice that my Dad gave me. As usual, no prepared speech to ensure a genuine delivery…but definitely some preparation time to organize my thoughts and delivery. So instead of four people reading my weekly update, four of you can watch me in action. This wasn’t a professionally shot video, our squadron Chief and Shirt did me a solid and videotaped the event so I could share it with my mom (she gave me a “good job.”) WARNING: get some tissues.
