Retired LTC Keil is a great host and delivers content that leaders at all levels should be interested in hearing. Significant guests and questions that give answers, meaning, and purpose to all redleg formations. It is incumbent for us as artilleryman and leaders to be informed and capable of performing. All leaders can benefit from listening to this podcast whether your rockets, cannon light or heavy, officer or enlisted. I like discussions on systemic issues, future of FIRES, and the insight of the thoughts from senior leaders on doctrinal artillery. Great podcast and again I recommend this to all artilleryman!
