The leadership message is clear. The Department of Defense, and particularly the U.S. Army, has a reputation as a leader when it comes to societal change and innovation. All fields in the military are now open to women, giving access to the highest levels of an organization with opportunities to practice leadership.

A mentor, the late Emmett Paige Jr., rose from an enlisted soldier to a Signal Corps first. The executive order integrating the U.S. Armed Forces was not signed by President Truman when he began his journey. Emmett Paige retired in the rank of Lt. General after 41 years. It was not easy; he talked about staying “ahead of the alligators.” Paige told early in his career that being as good as others to survive was not enough, but he needed to be better. The Honorable Emmett Paige Jr. left his COO post at OAO Corp to serve our nation again, after being nominated as the Assistant Secretary of Defense for C4I.

These days some ask, what can leaders do during the challenging times facing the nation? Leaders at all levels need to do the right thing, as demonstrated in the video. Leaders should reinforce values, ensure systems work to intent, upholding the U.S. constitution, and hold personnel accountable.
