Loren Reno, Lt Gen (USAF, Ret): “A Biblical Approach to Officering and Commanding”
About the Topic: The Bible has it all! Scripture reveals much to help the commander and staff officer: a reserve force’s activation, a failed intelligence-gathering mission, an early staff officer’s priorities and a later one’s approach to acquisition, and a decoration ceremony with an amazingly personal touch. Using stories from recently to illustrate the Stories of long ago, this week promises to be affirming, instructive, and challenging.
