Need More of This

LTC Thomas Gukeisen is exactly the type of officer that today’s military needs more of.  He is a battalion commander in Logar Province, Afghanistan and isn’t afraid to think outside the box.

LTC Gukeisen’s success, is arguably in one of the most difficult provinces in Afghanistan.  This is a reflection of a leader who makes command decisions that are best for the mission and not necessarily his Officer Evaluation Report (OER).  I’ve witnessed too many leaders who allow their OER to influence their decision making process.  Glad to see that this one doesn’t always default to a manual or to what his higher ranking officers want.
