In the movie ‘We Were Soldiers', you see the classic illustration of a crusty Sergeant Major (Plumley). Would you follow this man to combat in the Ia Drang Valley? describe why or why not? What leadership did he describe to you that you would like to incorporate into your life? describe how would you incorporate it?
Do you think Hollywood has personified the SgtMaj role into this kind of caricature for good? Can you think of any ex in a movie where the top enlisted leader was not tough, crusty, crabby and so on....?
