“ God created every man to be free. The ability to choose whether to live free or enslaved, right or wrong, happy or in fear is something called freewill. Every man was born with freewill. Some people use it, and some people use any excuse not to. Nobody can turn you into a slave unless you allow them. Nobody can make you afraid of anything, unless you allow them. Nobody can tell you to do something wrong, unless you allow them. God never created you to be a slave, man did. God never created divis ...more ”
“ Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron. ”

[close] "What are you reading?" That's the question John Laney nearly fumbled when he faced a review board considering him for a command position. Realizing how critical reading is to anyone becoming a well-rounded and well-grounded individual, he founded DODReads an organization dedicated to reading and lifelong learning. Here, the DODReads organization invites those with that same vision to gather, post, and comment. Books on the DODReads Group site include those on the Navy, Army, AirForce and Marine reading lists and others submitted as relevant by group members.

[close] As members of the Army Profession, each of us has an inherent responsibility to self-improve. Professional reading and writing are a key component that is often overlooked. It is easy to make excuses as to why we are missing this essential component of our development: not enough time, not knowing what to read, or just missing a bit of motivation. In this spirit, I have sifted through several published Army/Engineer lists aimed at the Self Development of NCOs in the ranks of Sergeant and Staff Sergeant. From there I looked for books that are less than 400 pages. My hope is that this may help motivate you to start your self-development journey. I would be to hear your thoughts on the books and how you see their lessons for leadership.

[close] You're probably wondering why the name "Grunts Gone AWOL." Well, we're a couple of grunts who have gone AWOL from our normal lives and are in search of scholarly ones instead. In short, we're just a group of adventure seeking grunts, who are looking to make a group of people that can and will escape into the realms of Fantasy and Science Fiction. All are welcome and encouraged to join! So please join, and enjoy the discussions and in-depth overviews of the books we read! (You won't be disappointed!)
