    The Seven Signs of Ethical Collapse. This is a book review of the book by same title. It gives a pretty good summary (or so it would appear) of the book, and without too much difficulty it's fairly easy to view most of the examples through the context of a squadron.

    The Mike Flynn Problem is Actually a Profession of Arms Problem - ML Cavanaugh With relevance to Fat Leonard

    FTA: "We don’t do statues like we once did, so today’s common monument to military service is the title retained in retirement. Without legal or financial options, this seems the most appropriate and just punitive target for a member who has so profaned the pillars of this profession. A simple rule with a simple consequence: If a member so tarnishes the profession’s tenets, then they risk losing their honorable status within the profession. This symbolic judgment would not impact pay or legally remove any benefit. Yet, the loss of title amongst professional peers, a figurative expulsion from the “Band of Brothers” — this heft transcends money."

    Surprised the author didn't say anything about all the $ Flynn got from the Russians. I'd think that a former high ranking intelligence official advising Russian firms/govt about US intelligence policy would raise a few eyebrows.

    Flynn was a potentially dangerous man. Given the stars all in their courses, he was an outstanding leader, but being that close to the White House..........yikes. The country is a safer place with him relegated to the ash heap.
