Former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis to speak at USU

The Herald Journal Monday, Jan. 06, 2020

James Mattis, former U.S. secretary of defense and retired four-star Marine Corps general, will speak at a Utah State University convocation on Jan. 21. Mattis’ speech is entitled “U.S. Leadership on the World Stage: Getting it Right, and Healing Rifts at Home.” The event, hosted by USU’s Center for Anticipatory Intelligence, is open to the public and will begin at 1:30 p.m. in the Evan N. Stephenson Ballroom at the Taggart Student Center. Doors will open at 12:30 p.m., and tickets will not be required. ... “Former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis is a national treasure,” Jeannie Johnson, the director and cofounder of the Center for Anticipatory Intelligence wrote in an email to The Herald Journal. “In a time of political fracturing he remains a bridge-builder. Deeply committed to the belief that ‘our strength as a nation is inextricably linked to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances,’ he offers a vision of US policy which includes healing rifts at home and engaging in sound strategy abroad.”
