all of the leaders I had throughout my Army career. Both good and bad, they all taught me something. I've realized since retiring, that even those "bad" leaders, more than likely are heads and shoulders above some of the "leaders" that I will encounter for the rest of my life as a civilian. I guess it's just a different world, but it sure makes you appreciate some of the things you never thought you would! Don't get me wrong, I've also met some good leaders. I just find them very few and far between in my experiences, post Army. So, for those of you who are still in and think the grass is always greener on the other side...just remember it might not be. Appreciate what you have and learn from each leader you encounter...just know whether it's a trait you want in yourself or one you'd rather not possess.
God Bless you all,
