Communication: An Essential Element of Success Communication -- An Essential Element of Success
Good communication -- sounds simple, but it is actually a complex endeavor.

Commentary: Are you ready? Are you ready?
As military members, we should have one main goal… to be ready! But, what should we be ready for? The real answer is everything. I’m asking you to consider what you can do personally to help us be ready for anything that comes our way.
