In a new blog post, Army Chief Information Officer Lt. Gen. Susan Lawrence praised the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr. in a celebration of the holiday bearing his name.
“Dr. King, through faith, perseverance, and reason, changed the course of our Nation forever. He lived by the measure ‘What are you doing for others?’ — an ideal that resonates with our Army values and Warrior Ethos,” Lawrence wrote.
She continued, “Dr. King was a driving force behind the American civil rights movement, and a half-century later we continue to celebrate his life and dream of advancing equality, opportunity and social justice for all Americans.”
