[Excerpt] The year is 1968 – two years after I enlisted in the United States Navy as a reservist – and the place is a man-made island built in the ‘30s in San Francisco Bay for the Golden State International Exposition: Naval Station Treasure Island. I was berthed temporarily at Treasure Island, awaiting orders and assuming I was about to get shipped off to Vietnam. Instead, and much to my surprise, I was sent to the brig where I learned invaluable lessons in leadership.
