• The death of a soldier is never easy to take and yet the fact that soldiers can die in battle or when otherwise in harm's way is an inevitable fact of military life. In today's world, however, when we hear about the death of a general it is usually after they have retired from serving their country. So, it was surprising and upsetting to hear that U.S. Army Maj.

Living in black and white

One Sunday while sitting around the dinner table, Louise and I began to tell Daddy stories, the ones that stretched back to the early days of his preaching life.

An openness to new ideas and new ways of partnering in a rapidly-evolving healthcare environment is the only strategy for success.
