    FORT SHAFTER, Hawaii (Mar. 12, 2010) -- Gen. Douglas MacArthur used the words duty, honor, country in his famous farewell speech to the West Point Corps of Cadets on May 12, 1962. Those three words accurately describe the principles of one 8th Theater Sustainment Command Soldier, Capt. Bryan Williams, Aide-de-Camp to the commanding general, 8th TSC, who was one of 28 active and reserve component company-grade officers announced last week as winners of the Gen. Douglas MacArthur Leadership Award.
