It is a great story. I honestly think that kind of leadership, grit and

determination is what this team needs. One thing the military will teach you is it is ALL about the mission, not individual accolades. Once you are in a dangerous situation, all you have is the man next to you. Everything else goes out the window - you have to be willing to fight for that person, don't let them down. That means doing your job! Kick, scratch, claw, but get it down.

I spent my post CSU days in the USMC, was unfortunate enough to be in some lousy places. When we deployed, all we cared about was each other. Marines are very cult-like in that sense, even "country" goes out the window, it becomes about the unit. We are trained to fight to win, because, it sounds cliche but there is no second place.

I never, ever equate combat to football - it isn't the same; however the leadership principles and training very much equate to team sports. Thanks for posting.
