Posted June 7, 2012 by Lance Cpl. Sean Dennison

I remember playing the game Battleship as a kid with my cousins. This would happen every family function up until we were about ten. Birthdays, holidays, funerals, Battleship was the only constant in our celebrations. The thing is, my violent cousins would always win. And by win I mean they would look at my battle…

Leader’s Forum: Culture of Excellence

Posted August 9, 2012 by Col. Bradford Gering

I’ve always believed that a “GOOD unit” is one where the actions of all members are guided by what is expected of them.  They essentially “do the right thing” 24/7/365 in order to meet the expectations of their leadership (all levels).  A “GREAT unit” is one where the actions of all members are guided by…

Inconsolable Shaheed Shabazz

Posted October 11, 2012 by Cpl. Sean Dennison

Inconsolable by Shaheed Shabazz, featured in this week’s issue, is a radical read. By radical I don’t necessarily mean cool, but I mean it will rock your world and startle your sense of safety. I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical before I first read the book; Shabeez is a Marine, a group of men…

Shin Dong-hyuk was 14 in 1996 when prison guards suspended him from the ceiling of an underground torture chamber by his hands and legs, all because his mother and brother had tried to escape. The flames of a charcoal fire scorched his back; a steel hook pierced the flesh of his groin; he lost consciousness….

The evolution of the cultural norm

Posted June 28, 2012 by Cpl. Aaron Diamant

As I get ready for work most mornings, I watch the news. I can’t tell you if it’s because I’m in the news business myself, or because I like knowing what’s going on in the world, or just because there’s nothing else on. But every once in a while, I see a story that shocks…

Posted August 30, 2012 by Lt. Greg Woodard

Recently my wife Vicki & I went to see The Bourne Legacy. The movie is about the ongoing mission to create super soldiers capable of superhuman efforts (both physical and mental).

Ever want to read a book that opened like one of today’s movies or had the plot of a romantic comedy but still had the thrill of an action film? Well then, the book Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter is just for you. The story is bold and funny and is a prime example of…

Opinion: Let one down, let all down

Posted May 17, 2012 by Sgt. Daniel Malta

Everybody has their job, and from time to time everyone fails to accomplish their job. What separates the men and women who fail is the integrity to own up to the mistake, which is easily the most difficult part of any job. When it comes down to it, that brief moment of uncertainty before deciding…
