As a graduate of a military academy, I remember well one question fellow cadets were asked by the leadership every once in awhile about their fellow cadets before graduation:
“Would you put your life in the hands of Cadet Linder?” If the answer was “No” from a number of your fellow cadets, you were expelled from the academy as not fit to be a leader.
I graduated as an infantry officer in 1975 and immediately donned those little gold bars on my lapel that said, “Follow me. You can count on me doing everything I can to win the battle and save your life in the process as your leader.”
I have one question for the voters of this nation, who will elect the next president of the United States:
Never miss a local story.
“If you had to put your life in the hands of Hillary Clinton to make every effort to save it, like our ambassador did in Benghazi, would you, considering the outcome of that tragedy? Or do you think your odds of being saved would be better with someone like Donald Trump?”
It does make a difference!
