GEN Beger

On Thursday, January 5, 2023, General David H. Berger, 38th Commandant of the Marine Corps, joined BENS for a virtual conversation as part of the Commander Series. Gen. Berger stated, “The All-Volunteer Force is critical to ensuring we meet end strength goals. We need everyone to promote the two goals of national service—to meet the needs of the country, but more importantly, to develop the capacities and character of the young Americans who will be the future leaders of our Nation. BENS is an exceptional forum of community and national leaders to help spread this message.”
