"All Non-Commissioned Officers are professional liars"

The Pritzker Military Library has a very interesting presentation given by Staff Sergeant David Bellavia, author of House To House.  He not only tells the tale of how he won a Silver Star in the battle of Fallujah, but he gives a quite insightful talk on social motivation and how that makes the Infantry work.  Very highly recommended.

Bellavia is also quite funny.  I hadn't known that he had been a theater major and quite likes Broadway Musicals.  Not that there's anything wrong with that, especially if you have a Silver Star and a Bronze Star.
