President Lynn Cheeney of the Shoreline Rotary Club expressed the excitement of all as our two clubs gathered at Shoreline Community College on October 10, 2018. She welcomed our Club and encouraged us to join in a pleasant opening sing-along.

Retired General Barry McCaffrey was the inspiration for our joint meeting. We were not disappointed. His was a powerful and informative presentation.

When he retired in 1996, General McCaffrey was the youngest and most highly decorated four-star general in the Army . He has received three Purple Heart medals for injuries sustained during his time in the Vietnam War, two Silver Stars, and two Distinguished Service Crosses, the second-highest U.S. Army award for valor.

McCaffrey was inducted into the US Army Ranger Hall of Fame at the US Army Infantry Center at Fort Benning in 2007. Subsequently, he served five years in President Clinton's cabinet as Drug Czar and is currently the Military Analyst for NBC and MSNBC. (per Wikipedia)

As security analyst for NBC News, McCaffrey speaks on issues in the headlines including the latest events in the Middle East, Russia, Asia and Latin America. He continues to travel extensively to Iraq, Pakistan, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan both testifying to Congress and briefing the White House National Security Council staff, the Pentagon, the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security, and senior leaders in the Department of Health and Human Services. (per the Washington Speakers Bureau)
