"...if as an officer you don't tell blunt truths — or create an environment where candor is encouraged — then you've done yourself and the institution a disservice."

A General Who Deserves Our Thanks



It has been awhile since I read a post from Tom Ricks' blog and thought it was worth reading. I was pleasantly surprised when I read this one about General Mario Taguba deserving recognition for his patriotic service, and how his integrity led to the end of his career. Great comments on the thread too, one being the comment from "Hunter" on how to contact the General and thank him for his service.

If you don't know who he was, please read the Best Defense blog post on how this General showed integrity for the sake of America, regardless of how those above him felt about him doing so.

Hunter provided this contact information from the General, and I encourage all to send him an email of thanks for his integrity, courage, and sacrifice on behalf of America.
