  1. Hi, Jocko, I have a question: are there situations when a leader is so toxic that it would be the best strategic choice to remove them rather than try to work with them? Looking back at history and even today, it looks to me like once in a while, particularly in tough times, economically or due to war pressures, etc. When people who would normally not be able to get to a leadership position take power. How do you recognize them early on, before they cause mass genocides or decades of war and remove them in a positive way? I can’t help but feel that a lot of lives could have been saved, if people recognized Hitler sooner for instance. And a lot of our best men and women could have lived. Awesome podcast! I liked your take on women leaders.

  2. How would it be possible to contact T. Fred Harvey? My grandfather was also a Marine and fought at Iwo Jima. I would like to find out if Harvey knew him.

    Thank you

  4. Thank you for this post. It has been both convicting and motivating on a very personal level.
    I’ve pushed myself to try and be a student of leadership for the past few years. I recently read Extreme Ownership and got hooked on this pod cast. I’ve binged on it for the past two months. It has been on my mind so much that I talk about to everyone.
    I joined the USMC just after 9/11 in part because of the inspiration of an old football coach I had in high school. I was 17 and playing linebacker for him in 2002. Throughout my life many of the things this coach said and did have stuck with me.
    Today, I was stopped in my tracks when I heard the voice of Coach Harvey coming through my headphones. Several of the stories he told on this podcast, I got to hear first hand on a football field and in a classroom. I will never forget them. It is an honor to have known this man.
    As if your books and pod cast are not convicting enough, I have now been reminded in an amazing way of what has been given to me and what is expected of me.
    All I can think is, what am doing with this experience? What am I doing with this life? How am I making the world a better place? What am I doing with the freedom and gifts that I have as a result of so many sacrifices?
