But this he did:
Vice President Joe Biden told Air Force Academy graduates Wednesday their country still needs them, and not just in battle.
“You do it all. You’re going be asked to do more,” Biden told about 1,000 graduating cadets at the school in Colorado Springs. “You are relevant.”
Biden talked about meeting Air Force officers in Iraq and Afghanistan but told the cadets that their challenges will be go beyond enemy states and terrorists.
He urged them to “think beyond the theater of battle” and spoke of other challenges including global warming and improving education and health care.
“A modern military needs great warriors, yes. But it also needs strategic thinking,” Biden said.
