Edification for Sheepdogs

Lt. Col. Dave Grossman popularized the metaphorical term sheepdog in reference to warrior/protectors in his book, On Killing (which I consider must reading). He expanded on that concept in On Combat (which I also highly recommend).

I write specifically for Christian Martialist Sheepdogs, and if you've followed this blog for long, you know that I fear there are more than a few wolves masquerading as sheepdogs in our military and police forces. Still, Grossman has something to say to those of us who choose to follow and serve the Great Shepherd as sheepdogs.

To that end, I submit to you this link to a rather long excerpt from On Combat:

"On Sheep, Sheepdogs, and Wolves"
