MY LT and Me By CSM John D. Woodyard

Note From CSM (R) Gerecht: CSM Woodyard was my battalion CSM when he wrote this article.  He was an incredible leader, exceptional mentor, and role model.  Unfortunately his life was cut short as a result of a traffic accident while serving as our battalion CSM.  I hope each of you reading this article today will be inspired as many of us were inspired by CSM Woodyard!

If you’ve been around the Army for any length of time, you’ve heard a platoon sergeant speaking of “My LT”. These words can be given any number of inflections to convey any number of emotions: pride, respect, exasperation, etc.  It’s important for the platoon sergeant to remember that the “LTs” performance reflects not only the platoon leader’s abilities but the platoon sergeant’s abilities as well.
