VICE CHAIRMAN OF THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF GEN. JAMES CARTWRIGHT
SPEECH ON MISSILE DEFENSE
MARCH 23, 2009
[ . . . ]
GEN. CARTWRIGHT: It is a time, because of the economy, that we've got to make some pretty significant decisions about our way forward. It's also a time that we are fortunate enough, because of the people in this room, to build on success. And it's always easier to go into hard times with a successful program than it is to not.
