Meet The Man Pushing The Trump Administration to Pardon Combat Veterans

Derrick Miller walked out of the Fort Leavenworth military detention barracks last week a free man for the first time in nearly a decade.

Nine years ago as a Maryland National Guardsman on his third tour of duty, Miller shot and killed an unarmed Afghan during a battlefield interrogation. Miller said he shot the man in self-defense, after a scuffle over his weapon; prosecutors said Miller always planned to kill the man. He was charged with premeditated murder and sentenced to life in prison.

In the years since, his case was taken up by an organization called United American Patriots, which advocates for service members accused of crimes in war zones. Its director, David Gurfein, is a Marine veteran who served in Afghanistan and both Gulf Wars. In the one year since he took over the organization, it’s raised and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on legal defense and public outreach, including to members of Congress.

A Counterintelligence Expert Says Asking Yourself One Question Can Help You Get A Promotion

Ask a career expert what to talk about in a cover letter and they’ll inevitably tell you to make it about the company — not about you.

It doesn’t really matter that you desperately need a job; it doesn’t matter that this particular gig would look great on your résumé. What are you offering the organization that they don’t already have?

Even once you’ve landed the job, that mantra — make it about them— can come in handy. Specifically, when you’re gearing up for a promotion, it’s critical to think from your manager’s perspective.

That’s according to Robin Dreeke, a Naval Academy graduate, a former Marine, the former head of a federal behavioral analysis program, and a current FBI agent. Dreeke also recently co-authored “The Code of Trust” with Cameron Stauth.

“I never think in terms of convincing anyone of anything — I think in terms of inspiring them,” Dreeke told us when he visited the Business Insider office in August. “If you want to move into a position of leadership, or you want to move up in the company, the first thing to ask yourself is, ‘How can I inspire them to want me?’

The ‘golden rule’ is wrong, here’s the best way to interact with people

We’ve all heard it since kindergarten: treat others the way you wish to be treated. This “golden rule” has long been a mainstay of interpersonal interaction.

Robin Dreeke, a Naval Academy graduate, former Marine, former head of a federal behavioral analysis program, a current FBI agent, and coauthor of “The Code of Trust” reveals why this conventional thinking is actually the wrong way to go about making a connection with another person.

He instead lays out what he calls the “platinum rule”: treating others they way they wish to be treated.
