Rick Hancok '75, Good Commander, Bad Commander

If you never have trouble with your boss, don't bother reading this. If you never wonder, "What is God doing with me?" don't bother reading this. The short stories I will tell are all true and are my personal experiences while in the Army. They all describe normal human behaviors by managers both military and civilian. The reason I tell them is that it's my hope that they are an encouragement to anyone who faces similar problems in their jobs and to reassure you that God is watching over you and has a plan for you. You do the right thing every time and let God handle the fall out. Again, if you never have these problems and questions, you should put this aside and read something else.
