“I think leadership is valuing the time you spend with your people more than anything else you do.” Herb Kelleher
As I get older… I remember the words of some of my military mentors. To paraphrase, they said: “If you ever get to be a Battalion Commander, relish every minute of your command, for it is the last time you will ever be face-to-face with your Soldiers, and wring every minute out of that time.” So many reflections drift back to those three years where most of my most precious memories live because of the excellence of those I had the privilege to lead. I greatly value the time I got to spend with world-class Soldiers. Thank you, MG Altschuler, for that command; thank you, 404th CA BN(A) Soldiers. Time only enhances the memories.
