  • 1993 ----- color ----- 28 min ----- vhs///
  • (Upon Reflection series) Host Marcia Alvar speaks with Al Santoli, author of Leading the Way. Mr. Santoli believes that failures of the military in Vietnam were based on old-style beliefs and strategies. Desert Storm, on the other hand, had new support-systems in order. As a result, the veterans of that encounter, and their families, were better able to cope with the resultant tensions and stress. He talks of Bosnia, politics and the military, the diversification of fighting forces and future wars and the draft.
