GEN David Petraeus

Found a great article in GQ today (no, I don’t get the magazine, no, I’ve never picked it up before, I was waiting as my fiancée got her hair cut) on a great man, GEN David Petraeus. The whole article is available online, for which I give props to GQ. One of the recurring events in the article is a question GEN Petraeus poses to soldiers serving under him. “What have you learned?,” he queries them. It’s a great question for any man to focus on at day’s end; how have I made myself better today? What have I learned? Did I get stronger, physically, mentally, morally, somehow? The article is a remarkable portrait of a committed man.
