In this 232nd Coast Guard Birthday episode, I speak with Vincent W. Patton (8th MCPOCG) about leadership and service. He shares with us his childhood background and how he enlisted in the Coast Guard. He speaks about the events that molded him into the leader he is and shares his story about how he became jump qualified with the US Army 82nd Airborne. Vincent describes how he felt about the news of his selection as MCPOCG and the interesting story behind his 26-year wait. He gives us his summary of the most significant changes he has seen since retiring and gives current and new leaders his advice for them to succeed.
