Matthew M. Caruso CMSgt, USAF's insight:

Reading about George Washington always motivates me to study and reflect on my own leadership style and approach to see if I am off course.   He was simply an amazing human being. Given the very tough and tenuous circumstances he and the other founding fathers were under, he was still able to keep an almost defeated Army and later a fledging nation on course and successful.  All of us should strive to be more like him in how we go about our work and deal with each other and how we treat our people.  This is an excellent short article.
