I’ve listened to both of your episodes from Combat Story (and now also rewatched Top Gun Maverick), and bought the e-version of your book earlier this week. I finished reading it last night, and just wanted to drop you a line telling you how much I enjoyed it!
I’ve been a military buff and Blues fan since I was a kid, so the book was definitely in my wheelhouse. But the leadership lessons that you presented were awesome – they were simple and humble, yet direct and powerful. Things I’ll definitely try to apply in my own life and career. I’ll definitely recommend the book to friends and co-workers, as well as add it to my list of graduation present books.
Thanks again for sharing your story and leadership lessons, and thanks for your years of service!
