Mr. SPRATT. Mr. Speaker, I rise to enter into the RECORD a speech given by a former staffer of the House Armed Services Committee, Arch Barrett. Arch is one of the most unassuming people I know, but was one of the most remarkable and able staffers I've met during my 20 years on Capitol Hill.
Arch Barrett's Graduation address was presented to the House of Representatives in two parts. The Hon. John M. Spratt, JR. presented Barretts speech given by Arch Barrett at the Naval Postgraduate School Joint Professional Military Education Course in June, 2003. His speech influenced the passing of the Goldwater-Nichols Act Whenever the Pentagon raised an objection, Arch Barrett was sent over and he'd argue with the naysayers until they ran out of objections and had to relent. It was a virtuoso performance by someone who had mastered the subject matter.
