General Mattis on Reading


For my protege, LCDR Christopher Nelson, at the Navy War College.
"Thanks to my reading, I have never been caught flat-footed by any situation, never at a loss for how any problem has been addressed (successfully or unsuccessfully) before. It doesn’t give me all the answers, but it lights what is often a dark path ahead."
General James Mattis, USMC
