    Here is a partial Bio from Wiki on General Hal Moore

    Moore was born on February 13, 1922, in Bardstown, Kentucky. He had wanted to attend the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York, however he found it difficult to be appointed to West Point due to the rural area of his hometown. Moore therefore moved to Washington, D.C., where he graduated high school and attended Cleveland Brown University for two years. After that, he was appointed to West Point by a Georgia congressman in 1942. He graduated from West Point in early 1945 and attended graduate studies at George Washington University and Harvard University, and achieved a master's degree in international relations from the latter.

    Moore was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the infantry branch in early 1945. He served with the 187th Airborne Infantry Regiment in Japan from 1945 until 1948. In 1948 he was re-assigned to Fort Bragg. While with the 82nd Airborne Division, he volunteered to join the Airborne Test Section, a special unit testing experimental parachutes, and he made some 150 jumps with the section over the next two years. Over the course of his career, he became a master parachutist with over 300 jumps.... Read full Bio here

    While I have studied military tactics all my adult life, I like General Moore's simple & no holds barred approach (see attached link) & have adapted it to much of my own philosophy. In reviewing it once again though Item 3.... INSTALL THE WILL TO WIN... I pause to consider adjusting it.

    We Americans tend to look at strategy differently than the Chinese, Japanese & North Vietnamese (I'm referring to the game of "GO" vs Chess: So I wonder if I need to adjust # 3 ?
