I have been very fortunate to have great people working with me when I was in the Army. Derek Schneider was my company executive officer when I commanded A company 3-77 AR in Mannheim Germany from August 91-February 93. Derek made a great command team, because he was into the profession like I was, and ate up the Maneuver Warfare material I brought with me when I graduated the USMC Amphibious Warfare School (now Expeditionary Warfare School) in May 1991. Derek went on to a successful command at Fort Polk and the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment which also dual hatted as the oppossing forces there, and he is now a reserve Lieutenant Colonel.
He recently took over running a bourbon plan in KY. He is doing very well. Derek applies the lessons from military history as well as the principles of maneuver warfare in his leadership. See the show below, it is very cool.
