For Impact


Happy Veteran’s Day: 11/11/11

For Impact Ideas | | Tom Suddes

Forty years ago (to the month) I was heading to Fort Benning, Georgia, to begin an Infantry Officer Basic Course. I followed that with Airborne, Pathfinder, multiple Leadership Courses… and 18 months as a Tactical Officer at OCS (Officer Candidate School).

Looking back, I cannot imagine a more powerful leadership and life experience.

My brother Mike was a Marine. My dad was a Marine. There’s been a significant number of Notre Dame boxers who served in the military, including a couple who are on the ground in Afghanistan today.

A big ‘SHOUT OUT‘ to all of those in our For Impact world who have served in the military. We appreciate everything that you do and have done for this country.
