“Major General James Utino once said that morale exists when ‘a soldier thinks that his army is the best in the world, his regiment is the best in the army, his company is the best in the regiment, his squad the best in the company, and that he himself is the best damned soldier in the outfit.’ Our job as leaders is to foster that attitude and morale.”
