US Army Lt. General Martin E. Dempsey, Acting Commander of U.S. Central Command, says history shows the new presidential administration, whoever it ends up being, will likely face a serious, immediate challenge.

Lt. Gen. Dempsey says he's very impressed with C.W. "Bill" Young Hall, the home of the USF Joint Military Science Leadership Center and USF's ROTC programs.

US Army Reserve Brig. Gen. Luis Visot, the Director of the USF Joint Military Science Leadership Center, says the ROTC students learn a lot from hearing from commanders like Lt. Gen. Dempsey.

Brig. Gen. Luis Visot says that USF's military programs try to take advantage of their proximity to MacDill Air Force Base as often as possible.
