“In this age, I don’t care how tactically or operationally brilliant you are, if you cannot create harmony — even vicious harmony — on the battlefield based on trust across service lines, across coalition and national lines, and across civilian/military lines, you need to go home, because your leadership is obsolete. We have got to have officers who can create harmony across all those lines.” – James Mattis, GEN (RET) USMC

(This Quotation Was Recorded While SECDEF Mattis Had Not Yet Retired From His Beloved United States Marine Corps)
