Col. Ralph Puckett addresses several audiences - 4/23/2013
Col. Ralph Puckett (Ret.), author of Words for Warriors: A Professional Soldier’s Notebook recently participated in the following events:
New second lieutenants shortly after commissioning attend “Branch School” to qualify in their specific arm of service. All Infantry second lieutenants attend the Infantry Basic Officer Leadership Course (IBOLC) at Fort Benning, GA. On 5 March 2013 they participated in a seminar in which they discussed Leadership, Duty, and Ranger School. The seminar was conducted the second day of the branch course setting the stage for the remainder of the course. There were approximately 150 officers attending. Participation and discussion were lively as the students discussed the meanings of the title words and situations that they most probably will face when they report to their first unit.
Columbus State University has undergraduate and graduate programs in History. One of the courses offered is the Vietnam War. The Tet Offensive, which occurred in February 1968, was a major event that significantly diminished support for the conflict by American citizens. The professor for the course asked Col. Puckett to lead a discussion on this period. Col. Puckett was acting Airborne Brigade Commander at the time of the Offensive. He drew upon that personal experience and added material from numerous authoritative sources to prepare his presentation and participation in the discussion by the students. The class was well received.
Col. Puckett also lead a leadership seminar with the commanders, staff, and senior noncommissioned officers of the 192d Infantry Brigade. This Brigade provides the initial entry training to thousands of new Soldiers each year. The Brigade Commander had selected Words for Warriors: A Professional Soldier’s Notebook as the book to be read and discussed by his commanders and staff. At the beginning of the month in which the book was assigned, the commander provided each participant a series of specific questions pertaining to different essays in the book. The four-hour discussion began with a one-hour orientation with the team leaders. Each leader then coordinated the discussion of his group of six participants. Essays selected for discussion included the importance for commanders to “Be There” with their soldiers in times of stress; giving credit to soldiers for good performances, how difficulties exacerbated by dispersion of units may be minimized, the importance of subordinates being honest and forthright with their commanders when discussing decisions by the commander, and many other questions that face commanders at every level of command. Participants commented freely and without reservation as they described situations in their past service and difficulties that would probably arise in the future.
