    Interesting new program that the VMI Center for Leadership & Ethics just announced. Sports fans may be familiar with LTC Gadson- a former Army Football player who though severely wounded in Iraq is still on active duty and has been engaged by a couple of NFL teams to talk with them about leadership, motivation and adversity.

    “You don’t get to pick your circumstances,” said Gadson. “It’s your obligation to be your best no matter what you’re asked to do.”

    What a fine quote.

    Good read too.

    Leader in residence

    What a great opportunity for the cadets and others to learn from this leader. It's impressive that he is the first of many "leaders in residence" and from what I've heard, the VMI Center for Leadership and Ethics is amazing...
