From 9 years ago - our new Secretary of Defense
Lloyd J. Austin III of Mobile, Alabama can best be described as the Soldiers' General. And some in the Navy are ready to call him the Sailors' General, as well. He wasn't in charge long before he made it known that he was a team leader, ready to listen to all the Services with no parochial Army interests in mind. In an age of extreme criticism of our general and flag officers, here's a guy who is so much less about being a GO (General Officer) and so much more about those he leads. Talk to his 'troopers'. He is a Troopers' General and those troopers are America's finest young men and women - men and women of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines.
