A first-hand account of leading through adversity. 

In 2003, Major William Edwards and Lt. Colonel Robert P. Walters of the 165th Military Intelligence Battalion were given the near-impossible task of improving the U.S. Army’s security posture at Ab Ghraib prison under unfathomable conditions. With input from officers who served with them, their can-did firsthand accounts of life at the notorious prison reveal unpublished details of the human devastation that took place there, along with unexpected glimpses of humanity.


 Military Transition to the Private Sector

Military veterans face unique challenges when transitioning to the private sector. While the skills and experience gained in the military are valuable, translating those skills to a civilian job can be difficult. One of the biggest challenges is the language barrier between military jargon and civilian terms. Veterans must be able to communicate their skills in a way that is understandable to civilian employers. Additionally, veterans may struggle to adjust to the culture of the private sector, which can be vastly different from the military. They may need to adapt to a new work environment, dress code, and communication style. It is important for veterans to receive support and guidance during this transition, such as career counseling and networking opportunities.



The impact on public safety and security

The evolution of commercial drones has been rapid and transformative in recent years. Initially developed for military purposes, drones have now become a popular tool for businesses across a variety of industries. In the early days, drones were relatively expensive and required skilled operators to fly them. However, advancements in technology have led to more affordable and user-friendly drones that are capable of capturing high-quality aerial footage and data. Today, drones are being used in agriculture, construction, mining, and even for package delivery. In addition, drones are being equipped with advanced sensors, such as LiDAR and thermal imaging, to capture data and images that were previously impossible to obtain. As drones continue to evolve, we can expect to see even more innovative applications in the commercial sector.


Lessons learned from over 35 years of leading
organizations from 20 to 800 people. 

Leadership within organizations is critical to achieving success and fostering a positive work environment. Effective leaders must possess a range of skills, including communication, decision-making, and problem-solving. They must be able to inspire and motivate their teams to work toward a common goal while also holding team members accountable for their actions. Good leaders are also willing to listen to feedback and adapt their approach when necessary. Additionally, leaders must set a positive example for their team by displaying a strong work ethic, demonstrating respect for all team members, and creating a culture of collaboration and inclusion. By prioritizing strong leadership, organizations can build a motivated and engaged workforce, foster innovation and creativity, and ultimately achieve their goals.
