What are you watching now?

Chain of Command

I just finished watching the last episode of National Geographic's "Chain of Command". It is an eight episode series that shows, well, the chain of command all the way from the boots on the ground in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Niger on up to the Chairman.

The last two episodes show a lot of SF, including the 3rd SFG ODA that got hit in Niger (camera crew was there a month prior), and the moving unit memorial to the fallen.

The series is absolutely brilliant and if you're able to watch it on demand-it actually finished up last month-do so.

Just watched the last episode. Very surprising and, I guess, fortunate footage. Poignant ending.

I have to salute NatGeo for an excellent docuseries.

Just listened ( in shorter clips over some time = on the way to work, dropping our boys to day care ) to a long interview of SGM Robert Trivino on *******, one of the best discussions on leadership and character that I have seen in a long time.

Ordered his book also and waiting to receive it, A Warrior's Path: Lessons In Leadership.

Received SGM Trivino's book some days ago and read it 2/3 way yesterday evening.

Again, a down to earth and honest tone conveys through the book with focus on his own mistakes also and ways of constantly improving himself.
