Striker was the squadron leader. He brought us in real low. But he couldn’t handle it.
Buddy couldn’t handle it? Was Buddy one of your crew?
Right. Buddy was the bombardier. But it was Striker who couldn’t handle it, and he went to pieces.
*Andy* went to pieces?
No. Andy was the navigator. He was all right. Buddy went to pieces. It was awful how he came unglued.
*Howie* came unglued?
Oh, no. Howie was a rock, the best tailgunner in the outfit. Buddy came unglued.
And he bailed out?
No. Andy hung tough. Buddy bailed out. How he survived, it was a miracle.
Then Howie survived?
No, ‘fraid not. We lost Howie the next day.
Ever have trouble being duplicated?
all about being able to communicate. A lot of people every day think
they’re communicating, but they’re really just talking, moving their
lips around, not really saying anything that people understand.
Honestly, the single most important thing in any job is the ability to
communicate an interact with others. If one can’t communicate, he’s
pretty dead — no matter what technical knowledge he might have about
his job. I’ve been to a trillion different job training classes,
seminars, read a ton of books, etc — but the single most important
skill I’d say I have in my job is the ability to communicate. And that’s something I learned at a Scientology church (in Portland, Oregon, actually — right down the street from where I worked at WebTrends.)
I would heavily recommend that anyone, regardless of your religion, study up on L. Ron Hubbard‘s technology of communication. You can do this on the Scientology Handbook website, or you can just order the full book at the Scientology Volunteer Minister site.
