September 11, 2014 — Mr. President, Mrs. Obama, Mr. Secretary, distinguished guests, thank you for being here this morning.  I want to offer a special welcome to the families and friends of those we lost on these grounds thirteen years ago today.  We know these memorial ceremonies – and you’ve been through many – are especially tough, emotion-filled moments for you.   more…
August 26, 2014 — Well, good evening.  Ministers, ambassadors, colleagues, especially General Dunford and General Campbell. I’m going to forego my remarks because I think sometimes these events are as much about images as they are about words.

June 12, 2014 — ADMIRAL JAMES WINNEFELD: Well good morning!  I’d say that in a whole bunch of different languages but I would probably offend somebody by missing a language, but good morning, it’s terrific to be here, and thank you Ambassador Nesbitt for that very kind introduction.  First, a few greetings. Provost Yaeger, Commandants Cosentino and Gorry,  more…
