Thomas R. Barton, JD , my father was a Marine, I never got to hear any of his stories.
My husband was A coach, he had the theory “ no I in team. “
He coached a group of eighth graders. The *no I theory * works well at this level. Kids work much better as a team if one of the five isn't trying to be a one man team.
His teams went to the Diocese Championship many times over a 10 year span. They won quite a few Championships! Just saying friend.
