During his famous Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln said that America is a nation “conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.” He proceeded to question whether or not such a nation “can long endure.” The testing ground for such a nation, as he observed, was not in the halls of academia or before the high courts. Rather, Americans prove defend their nation’s existence on the field of battle.

Since the conception of America, the United States military has stood as a line of defense between the American people and those who would see this great land conquered. During World War 2, it was the American military that crumbled the fascist war machines of Europe. Even today in Iraq and Afghanistan, our troops are fighting to rid the world of the disease that is radical militant Islam.

Edmund Burke once said “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” The United States military is our nation’s promise to both ourselves and our neighbors that evil will never triumph.

The men and women who volunteer to stand downrange of enemy fire deserve our prayers.

Diane Randon, Assistant Chief of Staff for the Army for Installation Management

Diane Randon earned a bachelor of science degree in biology from Old Dominion University and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Syracuse, University. She recently completed a certificate program in Leadership Coaching for Organizational Performance.

She has over 30 years of experience in resource and program management in a variety of assignments within the Department of the Army and Department of Defense, both in the continental United States and abroad.

Randon was selected for senior executive service in 2007 and has served as the Deputy Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management since 2012.


General Lee Avenue and Stonewall Jackson Drive at the Brooklyn Fort Hamilton base, named after Robert E. Lee and Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson, will remain according to the Army. They represent “an inextricable part of our military history,” The Army wrote.

Diane Randon, the Army’s assistant chief of staff for installation management, reportedly wrote that the streets were named in the “spirit of reconciliation” and that any effort to rename them would be “controversial and divisive.” Representative Yvette Clarke said they are “deeply offensive” to Brooklyn residents and they should be left in the past where they belong.
