Died in combat in the South Pacific
Embodies the finest qualities of a veteran
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action with the enemy at Los Negros Island, Admiralty Group, on 4 March 1944. In the early morning hours Sgt. McGill, with a squad of 8 men, occupied a revetment which bore the brunt of a furious attack by approximately 200 drink crazed enemy troops. Although covered by crossfire from machineguns on the right and left flank he could receive no support from the remainder of our troops stationed at his rear. All members of the squad were killed or wounded except Sgt. McGill and another man, whom he ordered to return to the next revetment. Courageously resolved to hold his position at all cost, he fired his weapon until it ceased to function. Then, with the enemy only 5 yards away, he charged from his foxhole in the face of certain death and clubbed the enemy with his rifle in hand to hand combat until he was killed. At dawn 105 enemy dead were found around his position. Sgt. McGill's intrepid stand was an inspiration to his comrades and a decisive factor in the defeat of a fanatical enemy.

An excerpt from Jack Welch's new book : Jack: Straight from the Gut
"In 1995, Bob Nardelli, CEO of GE Transportation, described a new source of great talent. With its headquarters in Erie, Pennsylvania, the transportation business had struggled for years to attract the best people. Bob said he found an endless supply of talent in junior military officers (JMOs). Most were graduates of U.S. Military academies who had put in four to five years of military time. They were hard working, smart, and intense, had leadership experience, and were surprisingly flexible because they had served time in some of the toughest places in the world. Nardelli’s idea spread like wildfire. After we had 80 former JMOs on staff, we asked them to come to Fairfield for a day. We were all so impressed with the quality of what we saw that we put a plan in place to hire 200 of them every year. We used our Session Cs to measure the success each business had hiring and promoting ex-JMOs. Today we have more than 1,400 on the payroll."
The need for talented leaders is more acute today than ever.
A recent publication by McKinsey & Company reported that three-quarters of the executives in the 77 companies studied said their company either didn’t have enough leadership talent at times or was “ chronically short of talent.”
A majority(76%) of the 252 organizations surveyed by the corporate leadership council were less than fully confident in their ability to staff leadership positions across the next five years. While 64% reported that their CEOs strongly agreed that leadership was a top priority
Junior military officers are an excellent source of leadership talent
