Humility, Learning, and Respect

Wise thoughts from "Day One Message to the Force" by Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III, 22 Jan 2021:

... None of us succeeds at this business alone. Defending the country requires teamwork and cooperation. It requires a certain humility, a willingness to learn, and absolute respect for one another. I know you share my devotion to these qualities. ...

... and the leader of the US Department of Defense concludes the memorandum, "I am proud to be back on your team."
