Soldiers are members of a profession of arms which has existed virtually unchanged for thousands of years- far longer than most other human institutions have existed. The Army has done so because of its unique character- a uniqueness based primarily upon intangibles that cannot be costed.More William Connelly quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is difficult to be a good noncommissioned officer. If it had been easy, they would have given it to the officer corps.More William Connelly quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Every good soldier wants to live in an organized environment, secure in the knowledge that he or she will not be threatened or harassed by others, confident that his or her efforts will be recognized, and aware that the nonproductive soldier will be invited to leave. In such an environment, soldiers will be proud of their units and will demonstrate that pride with their performance and behavior.More William Connelly quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You're not being paid by how hard you work, but by what you accomplish. If you can't hack it, pack it. Our challenge today is to look forward, to write our own history.More William Connelly quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Professional courage is the steel fiber that makes an NCO unafraid and willing to tell it like it is. The concept of professional courage does not always mean being as tough as nails, either. It also suggests a willingness to listen to the soldiers' problems, to go to bat for them in a tough situation and it means knowing just how far they can go. It also means being willing to tell the boss when he is wrong.More William Connelly quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
