Remarks by Naval Adm. William H. McRaven, B.J. '77, ninth commander of U.S. Special Operations Command, Texas Exes Life Member, and Distinguished Alumnus.

Admiral McRaven offered advice for changing the world from his 36 years of experience as a Navy SEAL: Ask for help when you need it, respect everyone, persevere through failures and, perhaps surprisingly, make your bed every day. Thanks for the sage words, Admiral. Hook 'em Horns!
