Developing Trust, Episode #2

Developing Trust

In Edition #2 we talk about a foundational characteristic of soldiering, and that is Trust. This week CSM (Ret.) Dan Elder and CSM (Ret.) Archie Davis dissect the term Trust and talk about trust between comrades, between the leader and the led, as well as trust in our leaders, appointed and elected.

We have opened the discussion in our comments section, you can call our hotline at (254) 853-4410 and leave comments as well.
