Leadership comes in many different forms, from a wide variety of people. When we discuss Military Leadership throughout history, we often hear stories of senior officers or those who have been recognized for brave acts of heroism. However, leadership is not limited to just a handful of service members.
According to the Army Field Manual 7-22.7 among other leadership duties, "The Non-Commissioned Offers (NCO) teaches individual and collective training, develops unit cohesion, fosters the values of loyalty and commitment and builds spirit and confidence."
In this episode, you'll meet an NCO with an amazing story. Sergeant Christopher Vars was an NCO who led his team in battle in the Korean War near the Chosin Reservoir during the harsh winter of 1950. Learn how Sgt Vars distinguished himself on the battlefield and why his family waited 65 years to welcome their war hero home from a land far away.
