Step Up and Lead

I bought this book for my nephew who is a Sergeant/Medic in the US Army and an EMT with Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad in Maryland. I'd have given him my copy, but this is one of those books that I use quite frequently and feel that anyone with a desire to serve the public or their organization should have a copy of. Chief Viscuso's writing is something you can really sink your teeth into. Along with this book, give Common Valor a read. You won't be disappointed!
