The Courage to Ask
As part of my work with the Department of Defense, I recently addressed a group of sailors about to embark on deployment to such locations as Iraq, Afghanistan, Djibouti and Guantanamo Bay.
I admit to feelings of inadequacy when I present to such a group. That’s why I embrace, so ardently, the comments of Sgt. Ryan Pitts, an Army vet who was awarded the Medal of Honor.
Amidst the comments he made during the commencement address he delivered at his Alma Mater earlier this year, Pitts said this about what he had learned about courage and confronting your fears: WATCH.
