Six Lessons I Shared at West Point

Six Lessons I Learned at West Point

Written by Don Yaeger on . Posted in Chasing Greatness Blog

Last month, I had the opportunity of a lifetime that was easily among the most incredible two days in my career as a speaker.

I was invited as a guest presenter at West Point, arguably the Greatest leadership academy in the world, to speak about leadership with the cadets–all of whom will be commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the United States Army and one day lead men and women in the protection of our country. During my visit, I observed many lessons in Greatness that I promise will have a tremendous impact on my life. I wanted to share with you a collection of these lessons in a two-part blog series on my experiences.

Steven Nardizzi thought he was prepared. But really, how could he have been?

A lifelong passion for serving veterans had led Nardizzi and a number of colleagues to start a small support organization called the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). The goal was to offer encouragement and care to a generation of soldiers coming back from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The group had purchased backpacks and filled them with items to comfort the wounded.
