Men’s First Light Collaborative
On Saturday, 11/4, we start a 10 week study - Make Your Bed by Admiral William H. McRaven (Author)
On May 17, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day.
Taking inspiration from the university's slogan, "What starts here changes the world," he shared the ten principles he learned during
Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life;
and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves-and the world-for the better.
Breakfast starts at 7AM next to the kitchen. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
