Leadership by Example
As an advisor with the South Vietnamese Marines early in the Vietnam War, Major William Leftwich '53, wrote the following words of advice for those who would follow in his footsteps: "My modest experience with the Vietnamese. . . is that they generally recognize, admire, and respond to the same qualities that we—or any nationality do." This, of course, was his way of expressing one of the age-old axioms of leadership, "lead by example."
