that's the guy...he was hard as hell on soldiers, especially hard on leaders- but in our business (as you well know) if you couldn't cut it, you had no business being in the business...he defined the concept of "tough love"

no kidding........I went to work today and this guy at work told me about this big Army General telling the civilians to "get those $%$%$%&#% weapons down, we're here to help these peolple, not scare them!!!"........and cussing, etc etc.

I took great pleasure of informing the young man about Colonol Honore and that there are a lot of men out there just like him.

The amazing thing is, outside Honore's world, the world he comes from, people aren't used to being treated like that, especially civvies. People aren't used to being cussed at the top of someone else's lungs. I've had that treatment. It sucked at the time, but in retrospect, I sure as hell learned a lesson!!!

The thing is........there aren't enough Honore's out there. I get in trouble at work all the time for being "hard core" "Cottonbalers" "hoorah" with the "employees". Little do they know what REAL abuse is........lol
