SSG Bob on 23 Sep 05 I had received a phone call at 1410 hrs. from SGT Bill stating that he had come into some money and that he had known that I was wanting to get some additional equipment for OUR SRT. SGT Bill stated that he needed myself to come in and type up a letter of justification and if I could also have SGT Jones come in as well to assist in writing this letter due to the fact that SGT Jones had been placed in charge of training folders. On notification of this I was on the phone notifing my soldiers of where they needed to be and in doing this I had also asked SPC Man if could also inform you of what I had going on in case he had seen you before me, but his telling you was not going to be your only notification, nor would I…show more content…
SSG Love the biggest problem I see with this unit is that many people do not want to be dedicated to anything but themselves. With SRT being a new team we really need to focus on what we can do to better the team, and get the respect for our subordinates, peers and superiors. I want to use this same style for my team in the squad, and for our squad itself. I believe it is a winning combination.

SSG Bob another thing that had alarmed me was your statements about SRT. I was more than surprised when you said you did not care about the team, I am hoping that was a heat of the moment statement. Out of everyone on the team, I think you know that I wanted you on the team because you are a team player, extremely fit, and could bring needed dedication to the team, I know that you would also not let others talk down about our team. I hope you can see where I am coming from on this point. Whether we are in a garrison environment or combat unit, if no one cares about anything and if no one has any pride it will turn into a deadly combination.

SSG Bob I would like to use a quote that I carry around in my back pocket and I would like for you to understand where I am coming from.

A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by quality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.

SSG Bob this is what I strive
