I was so inspired by Lt Col Sharon Latour and Lt Gen Bradley Hosmer's article ("Emotional Intelligence: Implications for all United States Air Force Leaders," winter 2002) that I felt compelled to write a short message of thanks! To be honest, I was delighted to see the Journal's dedication to the leadership topic in this issue, and it was interesting to read this article in particular. With a psychology background and interest in human behavior, I wanted to learn more about emotional intelligence (EI), so I ran out and purchased two books by Dr. Daniel Goleman: Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ (his original book on EI) and Primal Leadership: Realizing the Power of Emotional Intelligence (written with Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee). I had heard about EI before, but this was the first I had heard about its application to leadership-and, of course, it makes perfect sense. Thanks again for the spark needed to ignite my passion to learn more about EI. I look forward to seeing Air Force leaders continue to embrace EI.

My compliments to Lt Col Phil Haun on his well-written article "Direct Attack-A Counterland Mission" (summer 2003). Well done. Your readership may be interested to know that this particular subject was raised at the Hap Arnold Doctrine Symposium of spring 2002. It. was raised as a direct result of air operations experience in Afghanistan, but it is not a new issue-there are many examples from Desert Storm, Deliberate Force, Allied Force, and now Iraqi Freedom, in which the interdiction and close air support mission categories did not capture airpower's contribution to counterland operations.
