0515 – QIC kicked off the morning with the description of F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith; Five Core Principles – Free, Open to ALL Men, Always Outside, Lead in a rotating fashion,
and Ends in a Circle of Trust. Credo – Leave no man behind, but leave no man where you found him. Mission of F3 is to Plant, Grow, and Serve small workouts groups for the
reinvigoration of male community leadership. There were no FNG’s present, nonetheless, QIC noted he was not a fitness professional so the PAX should modify the workout as needed.

YHC was playing a word game on his phone in the airport one morning and the puzzle solution turned out to be a quote from a letter from George Washington to Alexander Hamilton. It
read “Still I hope I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain (what I consider the most enviable of all titles) the character of an honest man.” This was Washington’s
response to Hamilton asking Washington to run for President of the [new] United States. It seemed very appropriate to share because the Q Source discussion this morning was the start of
the 4th quadrant – Leave Right – the Construction of Legacy. George Washington wanted to leave behind a legacy of honesty in regards to his leadership instead of just political power.
We must strive to do this as HIM when leading our fellow employees and most especially our families at home.
YHc closed the morning out in prayer.
