I’ve been invited to participate in a bloggers conference call with a senior leader in Iraq tomorrow morning, and am asking the Wizbang blog community if they have any questions that I should ask. The leader on tomorrow’s call is Command Sergeant Major Jeffrey Mellinger. As the Wiki says:
The position of Command Sergeant Major is the senior enlisted advisor to the commanding officer. They serve as monitors for, and advocates of, the enlisted men in the command.
He has served in a number of increasingly important leadership positions, since being drafted in 1972, and now serves as the top enlisted man in his unit. At one point he was a drill sergeant in Georgia. Sound like one tough man. Put your questions in the comments and wish me luck. I’ll post a recording of the results as a podcast if it’s any good.
