In a connected world awash in 24-hour news cycle information and disinformation, the United States will continue its vital global leadership role as long as its leaders remember the reasons for established global alliances, Gen. Martin Dempsey told defense and community leaders at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) Monday evening.

“I am optimistic about the future for our country,” said Dempsey, a retired decorated four-star general, chief of staff of the U.S. Army and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who specializes in the complexity that characterizes today’s strategic environment.
