Rules to live by: a glimpse of the value of the NCO

Some months back I transcribed a xeroxed list of “rules to live by” handwritten by a famous Ranger Command Sergeant Major. It’s gotten some traction in military & veteran circles, and it’s a pretty honest look at some of the details that good frontline managers focus on in their jobs.

It’s inspiring.

The list can be found at Ars Ductus here:  https://arsductus.wordpress.com/2017/06/12/purdys-rules-to-live-by/
