    Jun 5, 2014

    While it is disheartening to hear stories of junior enlisted Soldiers making poor decisions and paying for them with their lives, it is demoralizing to hear stories of Army leaders who do the same. Odds are the behaviors demonstrated by these Soldiers -- even the leaders -- were not first-time occurrences, and someone else probably had the opportunity to observe the behaviors in action. What do leaders convey to their Soldiers when they act irresponsibly? Perhaps some of the young Soldiers' poor decisions were a result of messages received from their leaders' actions.

  • Retired Sergeant Major Soldier for life

    Oct 18, 2013

    It's 6:20 a.m. on a typical Fort Campbell morning. As Soldiers begin to fall in formation and prepare for the strenuous physical training session that normally begins their day, they may or may not notice an additional member to their ranks. Dressed in his PT uniform and sporting a fresh Army regulation haircut, this "guest" could easily go under the radar during the initial morning darkness; however, eventually his enthusiasm would give him away. The next thing the Soldiers may also notice is that this new addition to the formation is a bit older than the average Soldier in the formation -- a lot older. Nevertheless, as the Soldiers hit the pavement running, so does their 83-year-old visitor, joining them as they sound off with cadence. While this guest may be a stranger to some, this new member to their ranks is really no stranger at all. Retired Sgt. Maj. Dayton Herrington spent 16 and a half of his 30 years of service in the 101st Airborne Division and, as a Screaming Eagle, has had many rendezvous with destiny -- a destiny he foresaw at a very young age.
