Pithy Advice on Leadership and Hand Grenade Usage

I stumbled onto and it seems like it contains some pretty useful information for the general public. Specifically, I think the flashcards on leadership could be especially handy handy. For example:

Describe the "Be, Know and Do".

Army leadership begins with what the leader must BE, the values and attributes that shape a leader's character. Your skills are those things you KNOW how to do, your competence in everything from the technical side of your job to the people skills a leader requires. But character and knowledge while absolutely necessary are not enough. You cannot be effective, you cannot be a leader, until you apply what you know, until you act and DO what you must.

Seems like you could use these to build your own little leadership cheat sheet, or list of guiding principles.

And, on the off chance you need to master the use of hand grenades, they've got flashcards for those too:

How do you inspect unpacked grenades or grenades stored in ammunition pouches?

1. Inspect unpacked grenades daily to ensure that the safety pins are present.
2. Check the body for rust or dirt.
3. Make sure the lever is not broken or bent.

Other topics of interest: First Aid, Maps and Navigation and Wilderness Survival, not to many a variety of Army and weapons specific topics.

Definitely interesting stuff.
