    Yes, he certainly had help from Mormon insiders to nail down the cultural quirks. But they came from his mouth; therefore, he owns the words. I would have loved to have been there. My father is a retired Air Force officer and WW II veteran, my oldest brother is retired Army, and my sister has a son who is a graduate of the Naval Academy. Good for BYU for getting General Petraeus to speak on campus.

    God bless those who are willing to put themselves in harm's way to protect our freedoms and the freedoms of others.

    General Petraeus is my candidate for next President of the United States. Seems to me he is the one who put in the concept of going into a village and staying in Iraq.

  • The rest?
    March 26, 2010 11:45 a.m.

    Nice intro, but where's the rest of the story. Didn't he have anything intelligent to say? BTW, it looks like he had insider help to do this list. A lot like when Bobby Kennedy came to BYU years ago.

    This shows you one of the biggest problems with people in general. How long did it take you to figure out there were additional/ related articles and point it out to "the Rest" and yet so many responders in the comments sections don't have all of the facts but thin they do, especially in the education field.

    Not sure I see the humor in old jokes that have been used thousands of times, written by a member on his "staff" in an effor to make sure the audience was on his side. He's a great man, a great leader, etc., but this unoriginal top 10 really isn't worth the press it's getting. Does the BYU president really find him as funny as the picture portrays? Just all seems awkward.

    Funny Funny.... One thing about mormons is that we can laugh at our selves. We are secure in our religion. Also I like it when a big sports or movie star tries to say potentially offensive comments about out religion because we all end up laugh together. A good example is when Colby did that and we all laugh. Good times.

    His picture, looks like he is really having a good time. I admire anyone who serves our country and has such a sense of humor. The comments he made even though some old were still funny. His way of saying he cared and knew it would be accepted in the spirit it was given! My opinion. I see no malice.

    There are many LDS soldiers, marines, sailors, and airmen. Much of the LDS doctine is to do your bit and earn your keep. Prior to my joining the LDS Church I learned a lot about it from a fellow marine in a place we referred to as Dog Patch! He was a fine example. By being around many of the LDS serviceman, those of who were not affiliated with organized religion learned lots about LDS doctine. The good general might not have been prompted as much as one would think by BYU representatives regarding LDS peculiarities.

    GEN Petraeus is a true hero who found a way to balance military and civil humanitarian operations. The US military is a force for good in the world today, in no small part thanks to his leadership.

  • Duh
    March 26, 2010 9:24 p.m.

    No matter what, there is always an idiot who wants to find something negative to say, on any article that has the words BYU or LDS, never fails. That's why the world is upside down, people want to dwell on negative thinking. I think the General is an intelligent individual who knows what he is talking about. He has the respect of all Soldiers.

  • K Riedler
    March 27, 2010 8:24 a.m.

    As a West Point and BYU grad, and having served along with then MG Petraeus in Iraq, I can guarantee he always does his homework before speaking anywhere. His use of levity to begin his talk is ... well, just about like most every other very effective speaker we rally around!

    As part of my job over there, I was privileged to spend a couple hours with him up in Mosul discussing why "security" was working in his sector, while suffering nearly everywhere else in Iraq. It was not by accident he was selected later to lead the entire force in country.

    Gen Petraeus is a pleasure to serve with, a leader extraordinaire, and most folks in the military would follow him anywhere as his innovative thinking, combined with unadulterated common sense and ultimate "lead by example" attitude, separate him from most people -- inside or outside the military.

  • Loved it!
    March 27, 2010 8:41 a.m.

    I watched him live on BYU television Ch. 11 Thursday night. The talk will be repeated next week several times for anyone who missed it. He was absolutely brilliant and funny at the same time. What a good man and a great leader! Thank you for running this story for more people to be aware of it. Tuning into this talk would be even better if you are interested.

  • Army Saint
    March 27, 2010 2:48 p.m.

    I truly appreciate it when our military leaders take time to offer their respect to us as latter day saints, just as I appreciate it that the church takes so much care to make sure that members in the military care cared for. Having served in Iraq twice and Afghanistan once over the last seven years, I've had an opportunity to see the results that have come forth from GEN Petraeus' leadership and vision, and they are extraordianry. The western media will tell you how bad it is, but fewer people die, per capita, on the average day in Iraq, than do on the average day in America. These people are learning to govern themselves in their own way, and that's an incredible gift that Im proud to have taken part in giving. We owe GEN Petraeus a deep debt. He has served his country with all of his heart might mind and strength for many many years. There are very few men with the character, dedication, and vision that he displays.

    General David H. Petraeus is a national hero, patriot, and great American. His "Top 10 reasons BYU grads make great soldiers" are simply hilarious. It is very sad to hear a few people call him General "Betray Us." This man would be a 100 times better president than the current POTUS. I thank him for his dedicated service to our country that our current politicians are running into the ground. If we ever needed to go to Martial Law, this is the military man I would like to be in charge.

    One thing which is in this joke. The General's
    desire to recuite the Mormon youth for services.
    Why? it is not new. the goverment see them as best
    because of decipline and their high morality that
    they were raised.
    Now, we are in time as country losing our position
    in World as super power in all aspects. economy,
    political influences, militery. due to our losing
    of our morality and values.
    So only way now visible, is to learn from this
    Church how to teach our kids.
    We need restoration of faith. and that is what this
    church is about.

    March 29, 2010 5:34 a.m.

    This comment is not related in exactly the same way that the other comments have been. Yes General Petraeus' comments were funny, but does everyone realize who they were directed to? They were directed to those future soldiers, those student/soldiers who are training and preparing to serve their country in Iraq and Afghanistan. Those same 200+ student/soldiers that were turned away at the door of the JSB auditorium in a rude manner and sent to watch the question and answer session on a projector screen in a separate building. Is it right that the student/soldiers that are preparing to, and if needed, give their lives for their country under the orders of General Petraeus' command do not get to meet their General when he comes to visit their home campus? Is it right that those student/soldiers do not get to voice their questions because they are not allowed in the auditorium when their commander comes to visit? Metaphorically speaking, if Isaac Newton or Albert Einstein was coming to speak at BYU, I would gladly give my seat up to the physics major. Should it not be the same for the soldier?

  • cadet
    March 29, 2010 7:15 a.m.

    The ROTC detachments at BYU/UVU (they're combined) for Army and Air Force are the largest in the nation outside of traditional military schools.

    So in response to previous comments, yes BYU does actually make soldiers and airmen that serve, and really this is the last place General Petraeus would need to recruit. When it comes to signing up, BYU students don't need a motivational speech from top brass. We do it on our own.

    General Petraeus said multiple times that his staff wrote his talk and these jokes; "I'm only as good as they write." I highly recommend watching the whole lecture on kbyu whenever it airs! He generally described the situation in central command and what he's responsible for and then opened up the balance of the time for Q&A.

  • BYU Cadet
    March 29, 2010 10:23 a.m.

    It was an honor to have the General visit campus. Although it would have been great to sit in the same auditorium with some of my companions, it was an honor to watch him and be on the same campus.

    By the way, did nobody get that "Heber K. Romney" was satirical?

  • Cadet Cloe
    March 29, 2010 11:06 a.m.

    It's too bad that Gen. Petraeus couldn't speak @ the Marriot center. We have had several other keynote speakers for BYU forums that do not have the global impact of authority similar to his. His willingness to come here is not for recruitment but more for acknowledgment. The state of UT is the primary provider of all the linguists and the best provider of military intelligence personnel.
    I recommend that you remember that your opinions can be freely offered as they have been ONLY because someone else volunteered (or was drafted) to eliminate an enemy that you have never met, and hopefully will never ever have to. And also remember that those people who sacrifice don't do it for you. They do it for their brothers they are in the fight with. (Also mentioned in Gen. Petraeus' talk) "Get a life"???? No, live it, and live it well. Do something, and do it well. Enjoy your freedoms and show others respect by your words and actions always.

  • Re: Army Soldier
    March 29, 2010 11:16 a.m.

    Agreed Army Soldier, it was a bit disappointing to have to march around campus and not know what was going on or where we were going. I was looking forward to meeting or seeing General Petraeus. That being said, if all the cadets there that day (BYU, UVU, SUU, and Dixie) sat in that auditorium, there would not be any space for the public. You should have heard the cadets when he asked for that Hooah! I don't understand why they chose such a small auditorium for a distinguished speaker when they knew there would be such a large turnout. It was good to hear how intelligent spoke about even the most potentially controversial topics as well as have humour and humility about it. Overall, a great leader indeed.

    (I say he runs for president as well)

    A man who has a PhD and learned all he could about the culture of Muslims in Iraq would surely learn as much as he could about the culture of Mormons at BYU. Besides, the head of the Army ROTC at BYU soldiered with him in the Middle East.

    Anyone who wants to know how many Mormons serve in the armed forces should note that BYU has large Army and Air Force ROTC units; that so many young men admitted to the Air Force Academy resigned to serve LDS missions, and successfully returned and excelled, that the Academy now allows any cadet to take a two year sabbattical for study or service (LDS mission, Peace Corps, etc.); of my 2 sons, one served in the Army, and my son-in-law served 6 years at Space Command; that one of the daughters of Mike Young, president of the U of U, attended the AF Academy; that in my 20 years in the Air Force, there were substantial LDS congregations at every major Air Force base, including in Japan; and that the Utah National Guard is the main source of interpreters for the Army.

  • Raymond Takashi Swenson
    March 31, 2010 3:21 p.m.

    By the way, I can personally confirm item #9 about being designated drivers. I filled that role at many military dinners.

    Let me also note that I have never encountered prejudice toward Mormons from senior military commanders. All joking aside, commanders appreciate working with people of integrity, the Mormons among them. And they have respected colleagues, fellow commanders, who are Mormons. The story earlier this week noted that the Petraeus visit was set up by retired General Robert Jordan, a soldier-scholar like Petraeus, who was at the Institute for Strategic and International Studies at Georgetown University when I was in his ward in Virginia.

    I know of at least two members of the Seventy that were retired generals. Other LDS leaders served in various capacities, including President Monson (US Navy in WW II), President Uchtdorff (the modern German Air Force), Neal Maxwell (Army in WW II), Hugh B. Brown (Canadian Army in WW I), Lance Wickman (Army in Vietnam), and Richard G. Scott (a civilian nuclear engineer on the staff of Admiral Rickover).

    Apparently many others have believed that General Petraeus would make an excellent president. However, there appears to be little chance of that happening.
    He was asked in an interview on Fox News if he might someday consider running for president. His answer was no.
    He is not into politics. He has purposely not voted since 2000. The reason is so he can avoid a political influence in his decision making, etc.
    He wants his entire focus to be on serving his country to the best of his ability.
    I think he would be the equal of, or more, of General Eisenhower. Unfortunately he makes his own decisions - independent of me.

    As a member of the LDS church I don't think this was offensive, it just wasn't very funny. At all...Maybe his #1, to which I will reluctantly reply "Touch." But how many times do we have to hear jokes about these stereotypes? Let's hear something original, people! If I hear one more joke about green jello...;) And what about those LDS soldiers who attended the University of Utah? Hmmmm? I know a fair few. I don't know about you Y fans, but us U fans require a bit more originality and substance! (Okay, there's my shout-out to my alma mater in their defense.) If we're gonna hear a joke about the Church, make it good! NOT disrespectful, but at least chuckle-worthy and in good taste.

    Still, a great message overall regardless of the botched attempt at making a joke. (For which I'm sure he is not at fault.) And his acknowledgement of of our outstanding LDS service-men and -women is very much appreciated. This is purely my opinion on the matter and not an attempt to insult or "hate on" the General. Oh, and "Go Utes!":)

    I will have to admit that in boot camp, the LDS soldiers were usually the leaders.

    I truly appreciate his comic remarks. Wish I could have been in the MC to hear the whole thing. We've got to be able to laugh at ourselves once in a while... you've gotta love the "Axis of Evil" though... I'm sure my U of U friends will laugh harder than I did... Thanks General! (class of '79)

    Heber K is typical of all religious people, clinging to their guns and their faith when really most of the worlds disagreements could be solved the smart progressive way. We have to make sure we understand where our enemies are coming from, why we caused them to hate us. It really is our fault.

    Just listen to the promises of the caring forward-thinking, leaders, empower them to tax, enable them to redistribute the wealth, and everyone will be just fine... trust us.
