“An Army leader, more than a leader anywhere else, must be a leader in every sense. And for such a leader to help his men in everything but in their thinking is for him to avoid one of this chief responsibilities and to neglect one of the chief methods in which he can serve his men, his Army, and his country. By his education, his training, his very position, it is his duty to assist his subordinates in clarifying their thinking and in reaching an understanding of the purpose for which their Army exists.”
Edward L. Munson (1868 to 1947)
