Small unit leadership/ lowest level leadership is my favorite attribute that is (hopefully still) being taught In some of our military. How many times have we all heard, “…yeah I was the SNOIC as an E4/ E5”. My shop was heavily staffed so I didn’t benefit much from having to be a strong leader there, necessarily. I was fortunate to almost always have good leadership and thankfully was put into some leadership roles in certain times/ places. Never had the stress of Section Cheif or SNCOIC, so I guess I had it easy. I think that would have benefitted me after the fact but whatever, that’s how life goes. I volunteered for everything I could so no regrets there. Anyway, I miss good leadership but have lowered my expectations to adjust to corporate management. I’m glad to see that Zelenskiy seems to have good leadership around him and seems to be a good leader himself. Comedians seem to have interesting perspective and a way of communicating/ articulating that which most of us have a difficult time with.
Would be interested to know what others carry in their first-aid-kits. I was thinking about my backcountry touring pack and I think the biggest difference makers, for me, could be the SPOT satellite messenger and my fishing license with the SAR option (“free” rescue). Beacon, shovel, probe, 550 cord, duct tape, ski strap, multi-tool, mirror, candle, fire starter, radio, headlamp, gauze and compression wrap, tourniquet, sam splint, quick-clot, food, water, sometimes a lifestraw. Let me know if any of you have any suggestions from anyone that has medical training/ experience. Sorry to hijack the thread, but I do enjoy context, perspective, and discussion.
