Notice:  Offline for a Week

By | March 27, 2023

[March 27, 2023]   Due to a planned surgery, I will be offline for a week or so.  It is uncommon for me to miss any day without a blog post but “doctor’s orders … stay off the computer.”  As readers know, I’m the only one who maintains the site, and thus there will be no posting.  I will try to sneak in a guest post at least once.

Please continue to read my blog.  Below are several of my older, and more popular articles per my analytical software:



Please read my books:

  1. “55 Rules for a Good Life,” on Amazon (link here).
  2. “Our Longest Year in Iraq,” on Amazon (link here).

Hello. I provide one article every day. My writings are influenced by great thinkers such as Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Jung, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Jean Piaget, Erich Neumann, and Jordan Peterson, whose insight and brilliance have gotten millions worldwide to think about improving ourselves. Thank you for reading my blog.

    A great military and brave man. Let’s do the right things upon his return. We are huge fans upon his arrival.

  2. Sonny D

    Armywife, you are spot on with this statement of yours. Indeed let us pray.

  3. Armywife

    Praying for you and your family. Get better soon so you can get back to your amazing self!

    1. Bobby Joe

      … as always, to the point. Thanks oldwarrior, I’m sure Gen. Satterfield appreciates your directness.

    I recommend all of us give Gen. Satterfield some ideas for future articles and ways to make his website a tiny bit better. One of them, is the suggestion that he create a page that includes book reviews. That makes it easier to find them. Just one suggestion that I hope you take into account, Gen.S. Thanks again for what you do and recover quickly.

    1. Pink Cloud

      Thanks Jonny, spot on comment. I suggest he make a tab for all the leader characteristics that he has discussed here.

      1. Lynn Pitts

        — I just want Gen. Satterfield to be posting again here. I promise to write more movie reviews for him. Yes, I know that I’m falling behind on those reviews. And, he does have a separate tab for movie reviews. But he also did a great job with The Critical Drinker with “All Quiet on the Western front” (2022). BTW, a movie you MUST see.

    OUCH, “doctor’s orders … stay off the computer.” Now that is one mean-ass doctor. Why stay off the computer? Other than getting enough rest. Your body has to recover, so pull up your easy chair, get a cup of strong coffee, pet your dog, watch a good war movie (maybe even All Quiet on the Western Front), take a nap, and remember that we are just waiting for your next post and I’m sure it will be a great one.

    1. H. M. Longstreet

      I think I’m going to watch All Quiet on the Western Front. A very anti-war movie and for good reason.

  6. Doc Blackshear

    This might sound cheesy, but I believe in you and your strength. Just remember that all of us are there with you in spirit. I think that I might just re-read Gen. Satterfield’s first book “Our Longest Year in Iraq.” Now that will make me feel better and let’s pray that Gen. Satterfield feels better really really soon.

  7. JT Patterson

    We’ll be here when you return, Gen. Satterfield. In the meantime, I’ll be reading older articles to remind myself of the value of daily work to make myself and others better. We can be more than we can imagine we could ever be. And any momentary ‘feeling’ about who we are or are not will pass. We set noble goals and singularly work toward achieving them and do so with the truth. That is what Gen. Satterfield has taught us.

  8. Bryan Z. Lee

    We’re praying for you and wish you a super fast recovery.

    1. Jonnie the Bart

      Pow, nailed it fast. We are all praying for Gen. Satterfield.

    The Good Mother Fails –
    I looked over this list and found my favorite, “The Good Mother Fails”. At first, I had no idea what the heck Gen. Satterfield was trying to say and in fact i was a bit shocked and dismayed, reading the title, but once into the article I found it very useful and informative. This is the very kind of article that makes you thinkand think hard about life.
    Best of luck with your surgery, Gen. S. Speedy Recovery!!!!!!!

      1. Liz at Home

        Great to hear from you Emily and Gilley. I hope you’ve been well. Now, I’m going to go thru withdrawal, in not having my daily fix from Gen. Satterfield’s leadership blog. That means that I will do the fall back position and read older articles. First thing, read those he highlighted here. Come on folks, make comments there too.

  10. Janna Faulkner

    Good luck, Gen. Satterfield, we’ll read your blog after your return. Best wishes. We are praying for your swift return.

    1. Janna Faulkner

      And also, good luck and godspeed to your lovely wife who is helping out in your time of need.

      1. Nick Lighthouse

        We are fortunate and very very lucky to have Gen. Satterfield and his website about leadership and truth.
        We can support him by getting a copy of his latest, greatest book ’55 Rules for a Good Life” and read it and post a review.
