Values: It's All in the Feet

Leaders must continually communicate the organization's ethical expectations.

Editor's Note: This article is an excerpt from the book Leadership in My Rearview Mirror, published by MC Press.


Just before Thanksgiving 1969, I was officially informed that I would be getting orders to the Republic of Vietnam following my Advanced Individual Training. This news came as no surprise to me, but Maureen had managed to convince herself that something would change before I got my orders. Her father, who had served in the Navy during WWII, had gotten orders to the Pacific. The war, however, had ended while he was en route, and he never got farther than California. Whoever said "the toughest job in the Army is being a soldier's spouse" knew what he or she was talking about.

With the advent of ASNA Wings®, the screen scraper is officially dead! Wings lets you modernize your RPG applications’ user interface without the constraint of the 5250 data stream—but still keep RPG logic and file IO firmly rooted on the IBM platform. No big upfront design or analysis is required and Wings can be learned very quickly. Unlike screen scrapers, all of the display file data is presented to Wings, so there are many ways to further customize the presentation layer.
