Topic: Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way!"


I don't know who originally said the following, but my former Group Commander had it framed and on his office wall.

"Lead, follow or get the hell out of the way!"

Anybody know the original source?

i believe it was Gen. Patton who first used that phrase.

Can you confirm that with a source? I know it sounds like Patton, but I have not confirmed that.

I have a slightly different version of that quote listed under Patton on the site:
Quote:
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
- General George Patton Jr
I haven't been able to find a source for it yet, but I'll see what I can do about that..

Thanks, DTop.
I knew a fellow Baystater would come through!
