Ug!  He was cut short when his 5 min expired.  I'll have to look for the text of his speech.

Do we know if there was an 'ask' in there, or was he simply extolling the virtues of CAP?

Thanks for posting!

Didn't ask for anything, yet. This sounded like an "Educational" speech.

He is a seriously good guy.
Had the opportunity to meet him and brief him on some stuff my unit does back in April.
