    Thumbs up

    I understand the point you are trying to make RTK and you have a load of COIN experience, whereas I don't have any. I agree that Rowan provides a model for a leader who gets "it" done, but it is worth pointing out that he had 17 years of service under his belt at that point (USMA Class of 1881), and that his real mission is a lot more interesting than Hubbard's imaginings!

    That said, it sounds like you had some great young leaders working with you, and that you let them do their jobs.

    Rowan's real background provides a model for the career of a COIN specialist before we even had COIN doctrine!
