April 2011 Archives

I've been waiting for this talk ever since I heard he was going speak. The talk is short, like all TED talks, but it has some valuable information for leaders. I've always liked General McChrystal, although we have never met. He eats one meal a day, I eat one meal a day; he sleeps about 4 hours a day, I sleep about 4 hours a day. It would have been fun working with him.

General McChrystal's biography.

While reading the newsletter from the USS Henry W. Tucker (DD-875) group, I decided to poke around their web site a little more hand happened to run across this invitation to the ship's commissioning. Under crew, the eighth name down on the third column is my grandfather. I found it moving that he and my grandmother had a program like this and they were in Orange, Texas sixty-six years ago.

One of the things I have done in my life that made me the happiest was being able to connect my grandfather with his shipmates and have him attend the first reunion of the Sailors of the USS Henry W Tucker. One of the things I regret most was not being able to go with him to that reunion.
