  • Modern Force Leadership



    Stanley McChrstal speaking at TED in 2011. 15 minutes but (absolutely brilliant ) worth it. Should be required for Standard NCO and YO/JC&S courses.

    "Are they trying to shoot down the other drone? "

    "No, they're trying to fly the tank"

    Brilliant stuff. The Ranger he was referring to who lost part of his arm is to receive the MOH.
    There may be only one time in your life when your country will call upon you and you will be the only one who can do the nasty job that has to be done -- do it or forever after there will be the taste of ashes in your mouth.

          Had it up on my FB the other day, it's a smashing speech from a helluva man.

            You can just feel the energy coming off him. He's like a rubber ball, moving all the time. Good find. Worth taking the 15 minutes to watch.
            'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
            'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
            Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
            He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.
