Army Vet

“Army Vet” is, of course, a pseudonym. He is real. The only way he would agree to write for theLeaderMaker.com was anonymously. As you will see, he’s not afraid to name names and tell it like it is but he does fear for his family, thus the fake name. His experience in with militaries around the world is extensive but more poignantly, he originally served in the Israeli Army and then the U.S. Army; fighting in wars of both armies. He will write on military leadership but I think you will find him to be somewhat unconventional and certainly controversial.
