Just an addition, if anybody is looking for the BEST book on leadership, i suggest you read "Beyond Band of Brothers": The war memoirs of Major Richard Winters (the book title uses the other word for this name but it gets edited out). has some great insights on what it takes to be a leader.

Talk about required reading. Excellent articles, well written.

Did these get put on the SpecOps articles site? If not, they should be.

Missing Link: No, they haven't been put there, and probably won't be. To be honest, I think the rules are that they'd have to pay me for them at that point.

Everyone: Well, there's the last article for the Team series coming up, and the links into the articles may not be up until June because WeapsO is currently in basic training with the USMC.

I'm gonna break the news in here about the last series of articles. The last series, if I don't get hit by something that seems better, of articles will be called "experience" and will be hosted on Yahoo! 360' in my blog because they are reflective articles based on my own command experiences and how they relate to the three previous branches. They fall under more of the creative writing branch of things, and they'll probably have some speaking out that would probably be a bad thing on the forums.

Titles as follows:

Team IV: Armament and Confidence

Experience I: Speedball (The Colliseum)

Experience II: Scenario Paintball (Operation: Eminent Storm V)

Experience III: Woodsball (Bushwacker's Paintball Park)

Experience IV: The Master Commander (Reflections on a Position)


Now, for some other news. I'm looking for a few commanders to voulenteer themselves and become cohorts to the development of something big. I AM going to put these articles into a book form. What I've got here is more or less just first drafts. We've gotten into valuable discussions that have helped expand my abilities and everyone's thinking to a point where they need to be rewritten with the further points and ideas involved. What I'm looking for are some proofreaders that are willing to help expand on the articles and point holes in them out to me so I can continue work on them. You'll have to use the e-mail function to get a hold of me.

See? Doesn't it pay to swing by here every so often?
