Sorry. No time to watch a 45 minute video. But...

OK, without putting too fine a point on it, this is...

"I have no time for the nuance, so let me just tell you what I think about what I think this is about..."
and then brings an edge-case example where something generally accepted "can't work because of this one
time at band camp...", missing the point entirely.

Actually, the argument you try to make about this concept is a mistake many poor leaders make.

Of course if there is a practical reason why the "leader", per se, needs to consume calories first, then
of course the leader does so.

The Great McGuire Airshow Debacle of 2007.  ((*snip*))

The concept of Leaders Eat Last was completely lost on the adults in charge, and embraced by the cadet officers and NCOs.

The adults were always first in line for chow while many cadets went without food; registration was closed so the adults could party with the fighter pilots (even though a couple hundred people had no bunks assigned); cadets were left in parking lots for hours without relief or refreshments.

I can't even...

I think you missed my point because you took "leaders eat last" literally.  The point is make sure you take care of your people above your own needs/wants.

This is the bottom line of the presentation, though it goes into very useful and interesting detail
as to the physiological reasons why this is important because of the way the brain uses
chemicals and hormones to encourage behaviors that protect itself.

By hand.

There really aren't very many good statistical reports built into WMIRS. This is why during Hurricane Harvey, we had to build a spreadsheet that had all of the sorties in it so that we could "easily" extract certain numbers such as number/type of sorties, how many sorties individuals participated in, etc.

Who has access to the primary WMIRS database? They could easily generate a custom report, without you having to create a spreadsheet from scratch. So much redundancy and wasted time.

All the data is just sitting there ready to be mined.

I don't know who has access to it, but we were never given any access.

You all ready for the Civil Space Patrol?

I read the manual.

To me the idea that "Leaders eat last" means that leaders are making sure their troop are taken care of properly (meals, billeting, etc).  It does not necessarily mean that a flight commander should always eat last like others have stated.  It is a concept of servant leadership meaning to put the needs of others over your own.

Sure, the Flight Commander can eat last, as long as the Flight Sergeant ate first.
Need to have some leadership out there when the rest of the flight gets done eating.

I think you missed my point because you took "leaders eat last" literally.  The point is make sure you take care of your people above your own needs/wants.

One thing I found recently, and mentioned here, was that duty assignments automatically
enroll the member in the respective track with a rating of "none", so that really shouldn't be a "thing" any more.

This is true and all it does is keep an SUI AOC from happening.  I have seen too many people be in a duty position for years and never attain a technician rating.  I'm not sure what good it is to have this as an SUI question.  Maybe something like "If member has been in duty position for more than XX months then they should have at least a technician rating."  I know there are ways around that as well but the way the SUI looks at this area is basically useless and it was even before eServices did the automatic enrollment.

I do the same thing.

I will still write up a SUI AoC if the member has not progressed to Technician or Senior in a reasonable amount of time (2 years or more).  Not that AoCs matter in the long run, but it is a little nudge to the Squadron CC and Staff member.  I also talk to Wing Staff members about monitoring, mentoring and encouraging their Squadron counterparts to progress through the respective specialty track.

If anything, this will discourage members from becoming true SMEs. Instead of excelling at one duty assignment, members are sent down the path of being mediocre at several.

I can only make assumptions.

That is not true. You can also wait for people to answer your question. In fact, not doing that, but proceeding with your assumptions, is neither a good use of your time nor is it necessary.

And my favorite question pops up again - Who is going to pay for this?

The same people paying for the other branches.

Always wanted to partake in one but after looking at WMIRS there doesint they never seem to have a need for ground teams just pilots. Well atleast I know how to search for them now thanks.

Hence my question above asking what types of missions HLS entails? The ones I'm aware of are Air Force and one is Army .. so not sure how that ties in with HLS, but thats how they are listed. Maybe it has nothing to do with the mission, but is about how money is being shifted around to different branches of gov't. Maybe HLS is a "clearing house". LOL

Majority are air intercept training missions where CAP plays target for various customers to practice. See here: https://www.hstoday.us/federal-pages/dhs/cbp/civil-air-patrol-provides-viable-asset-bolstered-border-reconnaissance/
