As a retired service member, this day means a lot. It is the day we celebrate our willingness to fight a mighty empire to be independent of tyranny. The brave founding fathers were willing to sign their own death certificate as they committed treason against the crown. They were able to inspire the colonies to fight for a free nation. That is the foundation of our DNA as Americans: standing for what we believe. As a leader in the service today, we need to do the same for our teams. We don’t need to fight for independence; rather, we need to be willing to put our necks on the line for our team when they need it and not focus only on getting a strat.

Happy Fourth of July to all of my brothers and sisters in arms!
