What did you learn from your years in the service that helps you perform your job today?

As an officer in the U.S. Army I learned that my team always comes first, that it is important to be an inspirational leader for the morale of the team and to provide clear direction. I had many leadership learning opportunities while I was stationed in Germany and deployed to Saudi Arabia on multiple missions. The foundation of the leader I am today is from what I learned in the military.
