Why is the opening session speech not fully published? Each speaker can release or retain publication rights (audio, video, and text). Some speakers do not always grant permission. We respect those requests. Capt. Barber was gracious and participated in a video interview that we have posted for viewers. She also permitted us to post photos of her, which you will find in our photo gallery.
