The first thing that you need to understand about USMC General James Mattis is what the term Mad Dog really means to his troops. It is a term of respect and endearment that recognizes his tenacity to always do the right thing.

The Director of the Center for the Study of Professional Military Ethics at The United States Naval Academy, Dr. Albert C. Pierce, introduced him. He recounted this wonderful story in his introduction. It is taken directly from the lecture’s transcript,

They would package them in small bundles.
Then on Christmas day, he would load his vehicle. At about 4 a.m., General Krulak would drive himself to every Marine guard post in the Washington-Annapolis-Baltimore area and deliver a small package of Christmas cookies to whatever …
