Lipscomb & Pitts
"David Rutherford had many great points, like no one is born elite, to succeed we have to break out of our comfort zones (we need to get cold, wet, and sandy), we have to have re-occurring training, paying attention to the details is critical, and everyone leads. So much of real leadership, whether in the military, a corporation, or within our family, is truly built on us leading by example.
Listening to my brother and David share war stories and talk about what the troops are really going through has been an eye opening experience for me. As family, we often are shielded from the truth. So, I want to encourage each of you to go out of your way to thank the next man or woman you see in uniform because most of us truly do not understand the magnitude of their sacrifice."
