Memorial Day...a day to remember fallen heroes... remembering and honoring military personnel who died in the service of their country, particularly those who died in battle or as a result of wounds sustained in battle.
The Military Code of Conduct, used by the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines--was a foundational set of principles that helped Lee Ellis and his comrades survive more than 5 years as prisoners-of-war in Vietnam. These principles are a great guide for any leader--military, civilian, corporate, government, or private sectors!
