This is the fourth interview in a series that ALL MARINE RADIO will produce entitled “THOUGHTS ON DISCIPLINE.“ The series features US Marine Corps leaders who have led Marines for decades, who have seen the Marine Corps before wars, during wars and after wars, and who have seasoned views of the role discipline plays in the existence of the Marine Corps and the lives of Marines. Each of these leaders has a deep understanding of what discipline has to look like so a “First to Fight” organization can accomplish its assigned tasks during a conflict or in peacetime.
General Anthony C.Zinni, USMC (ret) hails from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and during his long successful career as a Marine (1965-2000) became known for his personality, intellect, combat experience and devotion to professional military development for ALL Marines. In this interview you’ll hear the “why” behind General Zinni’s thoughts on leadership and discipline — this interview is like everything I’ve ever seen or heard him do — thought provoking and awesome.
