Courage, Leadership and Friendship - Here's a model

Digging about the blogosphere, I came acoss a plea to visit the site of The Irish Lass, where she was posting a series of articles as a tribute to a California politician, B.T. Collins, who had been a wounded Vietnam Vet. I read thru a the series and came upon a speech B.T. Collins made about a man who showed up to be his Company Commander, Sam Bird, in the boonies of Vietnam. In a short read, there are incredible messages about leadership, gratitude, courage, and a friendship. It may have been written because of a war that is fading with time, but the lessons are timeless.
