Duty, Honor, Country

On May 12, 1962, Ret. Gen. Douglas MacArthur addressed the students of the United States Military Academy at West Point. This speech became MacArthur’s farewell address where he famously states, “Duty, Honor, Country: These three words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying points: to build courage when courage seems to fail; to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith; to create hope when hope becomes forlorn.”
