FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas " Command Sgt. Maj. Hu Rhodes, U.S. Army North (Fifth Army), and senior enlisted leader for Fort Sam Houston and Camp Bullis, tells his noncommissioned officers to "practice their leadership" during a NCO professional development session May 30 at the Warfighter and Family Readiness Center. He built the discussion around topics including suicide prevention, sexual assault and harassment prevention, and the expected effects of sequestration. "The things you know need to be done " do it," Rhodes told the gathered NCOs. "You know how to lead. And, if you don't go lead those Soldiers, then you will fail those Soldiers."
