Building leaders - on Midrats

Start arranging your weekend schedule Shipmates - this Sunday, 01 May from 5-6pm EST you won't want to miss Midrats. EagleOne and I are serving up top-shelf guests, so take a break from twirling around the Maypole or marching down Red Square to spend an hour with us.

How do you intellectually prepare combat leaders? If you are given a young man or woman at 18, how do you best educate that person so they have the cultural, ethical, technical, and historical knowledge to make the right decisions for the right reasons, and lead others to do the same?

What are unchanged, timeless fundamentals, and what new things are coming over the horizon that today's Ensigns and Second Lieutenants need to have inculcated in to their intelect so they have the best foundation to become this nation's Admirals and Generals for the mid-21st Century?

We've lined up just the right two guests to discuss this critically important subject.

Their guest for the first half of the hour will be
Vice Admiral Michael H. Miller, USN, the 61st Superintendent of the United States Naval Academy.

For the second half of the hour we will have Dr.
Victor Davis Hanson, PhD, author, professor, nationally syndicated columnist, and the Martin and Illie Anderson Senior Fellow in Residence in Classics and Military History at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University.

Do not miss this opportunity.

Join us live if you can and join in with the usual suspects in the chat room where you can contribute your thoughts and observation - and suggest to us questions for our guests.
