I was reminded how much words matter by one of the speakers at the recent retirement ceremony for Lt. Col. Lawrence Camacho, whose 21-year career has seen the development of so many fine military leaders. At the ceremony, Lt. Col. Stephen Messenger, who will take over for Lt. Col. Camacho as the chair of the Military Science department at Drexel, recalled how Lt. Col. Camacho uttered  “80 words that would change his life — the oath of office.” Congratulations to Lt. Col. Camacho.
