WISDOM OF HARRIS FAULKNER
Fox News host Harris Faulkner never forgot her father’s invaluable tenets for getting through life, and has now shared that wisdom in a new book published by Harper Collins.
“9 Rules of Engagement: A Military Brat’s Guide to Life and Success” reflects the courage, perseverance and patriotism of her dad, retired U.S., Army Lt. Col. Bob Harris, who served two tours in Vietnam as a combat pilot. The book is also a candid reflection of Ms. Harris’ experiences and motivations, as well as her generosity of spirit. The endearing photos of her family are of particular note.
“In this climate, I find myself returning to the touchstones of my youth, realizing more clearly just how lucky I was to grow up as the daughter of a lieutenant colonel. Because the military exists to deal with challenging situations, so much of what they teach our troops about achieving success in trying times applies to us civilians trying to succeed in these times,” the author writes.
Her nine rules for getting include “Recruit your special forces;” “Stay ready;” “Wear camo,” “Unleash the power of integrity;” and “Think like a general.”
“Are you catching the rules in play here?” Ms. Faulkner asks her readers. “This is a tie for all Americans — you in particular — to use as many of these nine rules as needed to meets the challenges and opportunities ahead of you. I say go forth and use them all!”
