"I don't see a woman, I see a Soldier."

September 22, 2009 | Captain Kayley Nammari

Could this article be any more motivating?!

All women in the Army can use this as a source of motivation.  As a female who lives by the rule of "No BS", I find it inspiring to read of SGM King's accomplishments and strict attention to detail.  Hooah and congratulations to SGM King!

    It is a great story...though it would be better if she had deployed. Tough to tell someone how it is "over there" when you haven't been.

    That goes for all senior leaders...though I agree...with a newborn baby girl it is great to know that she can be anything she wants to in life. 4-Star General, Sergeants Major of the Army...President of the United States. We live in a great country!!!

    CSM King is what every NCO should aspire to be. She has served to the best of her ability wherever she's been assigned, upholding standards and taking care of Soldiers. We often don't have a choice of where we serve or if we deploy. The fact she hasn't deployed does not take away from the fact she is a great leader.

    She is a someone all NOCs (and officers) can look to for guidance and inspiration She is a SOLDIER and NCO!

    I never said it took away from the fact that she is a great leader...it just would have made a better story if she has deployed. It sounds like she is a great Soldier, and one to certainly be admired.
