Well, I hate that you feel that way.
Nothing but respect for you buddy but I have to tell you, correct me if I am wrong, you seem to be saying that you are the only one that can do the job right. That, to me, is a little self centered and not fair to everyone else.
I have been around for awhile and I know that you done a good job but I also know that you didnt do it alone.
To imply that no one can do it and that your just going to leave before we fall is not the comments of the leader I once knew and respected.
Good luck to you, may your future endeavors be kind to you!
I appointed two of the last 5 HOT commanders, I didn't appoint them thinking they would fail, I had nothing but great hope for them as I have hope for Steve... but I'm a realist, the odds are that most people cant do the job, this doesn't make me a better person it just means that I have a talent in one area much like I could never match Highborn in attacking and defending.
Steve may well be another person with this talent but the odds are against him, hopefully he will beat those odds.
