<< Like Craig and Steve and Terry and all the others have been saying: before
you can be somebody you must learn to be nobody. Put your time in as a
ranker. Do the drill, take the pain, take the shame and then build the
glory. When you're damned good at being at the bottom then push your way
upward. Become a commanding NCO and start all over again....then push to
becaome an Officer...if it's your thing at that moment.
>>Just like Wellington, Picton, Crawfud all of those chaps :-)
(Just stirring it, but trying to remind you that that's not the way they did
it back then)
- Yeah...wasn't this Len's ball?
I mean there are many of us who have batted the idea around before but it
seems to me Len was the person who was actually going to do it.
You might want to talk to him.

been an NCO for about 25 years with the reserves and been with the
IMUC now for 11 years. Still stuff to learn? YES absolutely. I can
provide some background on being an NCO though. I would be
interested in attending such a 'school' myself.
