092: Sgt. Major Frank Grippe| A Leader in The Profession of Arms
2 days ago
Before retiring Sgt. Major Frank Grippe was the senior enlisted Soldier for US Central Command in charge of military operations in 20 countries in Northern Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East. He came out of the subzero weather of the Spartan Agoge to share his wisdom of grit hard earned through his 30 years as a ranger in the army. His is decidedly a no nonsense approach. Grippe knew what he wanted and simply did the job day in and day out, learned all he could from the best mentors he could find and when the opportunities to advance presented themselves, he was ready. He has gone through life with a single minded purpose and one might come away with the impression that he hasn’t entertained the idea of an alternative livelihood, even for a second. Lessons: 1. Knowing exactly what you want makes getting it that much easier. 2. Force of will is everything. 3. Positions of responsibility demand complete transparency.
