Quote From Colin Powell

“For years, I have told young officers that most of what I know about military life I learned in my first eight weeks at Fort Benning. I can sum up those lessons in a few maxims…

  • “Take charge of this post and all government property in view.” – The Army’s first general order.
  • The mission is primary, followed by taking care of your soldiers.
  • Don’t stand there. Do something.
  • Lead by example.
  • “No excuse, sir”.
  • Officers always eat last.
  • Never forget, you are an American infantryman, the best.
  • And never be without a watch, a pencil and a notepad.”
