Ret. CMSgt Doug Isaacks had a full career as a PJ and served twice as the Commandant for INDOC. He made significant strides in optimizing and modernizing training and selection.

This is a wonderful, heartfelt and enlightening discussion with a thoughtful leader on his reflections of being the Commandant of INDOC, and the challenges of running assessment and selection for a critical career field.

We hope this inspires PJs to consider tours in the pipeline because of the absolute importance of training our next generation of operators. And also impress upon young operators the gravity of these leadership roles, and to aspire to greatness in operations and leadership!

THAT OTHERS MAY LIVE
