Mate I fully agree, and from my experiance they are a rare breed. But as I said there are good officers out there, but acadamys shape them, they don't make them. As my father use to say(23 years vet) "it's good to be everything with rank, but a shame to be nothing without it"
Quote from CHATSDALE
my sil's neice needed help getting through college and joined the rotc..she had some obligated service after graduation but she loved the travel and service life and she stayed..will be eligible to retire next year at age 39..she just made lt col so she may not actually retire but she has had a good life and seen things that she never would have seen as a nurse in arkansas where she grew up
and bolts..you are right about leaders being born with that talent but if you take a natural ability and give them the teaching of experienced leaders you have a rare person
