During times of political and economic turmoil, retired Gen. Martin Dempsey offered hope when he spoke at the University of Alabama in Huntsville’s Distinguished Lecture Series.

“Fear is such a powerful, powerful emotion,” Dempsey told a crowd of about 250 business and community leaders at the UAH Student Services Building on March 11. “We have to make sure we don’t lose control of our emotions and become overly or excessively fearful of our future.”

Dempsey is a decorated four-star general, former chief of staff of the Army, and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He also served as principal military adviser to the president, secretary of defense and the National Security Council. He is a professor at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and Sanford School of Public Policy, where he teaches courses on American civil-military relations, management and leadership.
