EXCLUSIVE: STRATCOM commander talks about growing up in Huntsville and the future of nuclear weapons

    Jeff Martin, jmartin@waaytv.com Jan 8, 2017 Updated Jan 9, 2017 0

HUNTSVILLE, AL--In an exclusive interview, Huntsville native and Air Force General John Hyten, the commander of the United States Strategic Command spoke to Redstone Alabama's Jeff Martin about growing up in the North Alabama city, what's ahead for STRATCOM, and the future of nuclear weapons.

General Hyten graduated from Huntsville's Grissom High School in 1977, and then went to Harvard, graduating in 1981 with a commission in the United States Air Force. He says that growing up in Huntsville inspired him to join the space program, and that the Air Force was a way to do it, adding that he "started that adventure in 1977, and I'm still going. So I think the Air Force got it's money worth."

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
