Like the late General and Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Admiral Mike Mullen has spent his adult life pursuing and promoting peace while also taking up arms in the defense of his country. In the spirit of Rabin, he has frequently spoken about the dual role of the soldier as warrior and peacemaker. During his tenure, Admiral Mullen has brought military cooperation between Israel and the U.S. to unprecedented levels, and at the same time has advocated for diplomacy and economic and political development in creating conditions for peace.

Admiral Mullen joins The New York Times columnist David Brooks in an in-depth look at the role of the armed forces as a moral, cultural, and humanitarian force as part of the Jewish Primary Day School of the Nation’s Capital 6th Annual Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Lecture.
