    I've read a number of good books recently on leadership. One of the best was "Who Moved My Cheese?" by Spencer Johnson. I also like Warren Bennis' "Managing People is Like Herding Cats."

    Sir,
    Thank you for your service and our freedom, I do not take that for granted. I read your article on Leadership in the global world and found it very insightful. The kind of leadership that you are talking about comes from a book called Coaching For Improved Workplace Performance. It is one of the books that were recommended to me by the former CEO of Jack In The Box. It simply states that a leaders job is to do whatever possible to remove the impediments of the team. Success is not measured by ones own accomplishment, but by the accomplishments of the team. The young Sergeant that you speak of reminds me of the Marines' Chesty Puller. At the battle of the Chosen Reservoir he was surrounded on all sides; instead of panic he said great, then any direction I aim I am sure to hit one of them! Uncommon valor was a common virtue. What leadership books would you say have had the most impact on your life? I look forward to reading your book soon.

    It was a great trip. The MBAs at Northwestern University are a bright and vivacious bunch. Tomorrow, I'm off to Albuquerque.

    Mainly because the Japanese and the Okinawans want them out. They have been a sore point in our bilateral relations since the reversion of Okinawa - especially the Marines, I'm sad to say. This is part of the general retrenchment in the Pacific. Most people out there don't really want us, until they are in trouble.
