Episode 30: The Privilege of Leading
Officers in the military are often the butt of jokes – especially those who don’t look upon their role as one of privilege as well as responsibility. This privilege to lead comes from the men and women they lead, who according to our guest, retired Colonel James Sims, can decide at a crucial moment that they just ain’ gonna follow this jack wagon. Colonel Sims was the type of officer, however, who knew this and felt held that trust deep in his heart. In the first of a series of interviews, James discusses his time in the Marines, starting as a reservist in the Platoon Leaders Course to his retirement close to 30 years later. Stand at ease and give it a listen!
