What Leaders Are Saying about Accountability Builder

“The language of Oz became part of the EMT (Emergency Medical Treatment) lexicon. Soldiers were often overheard saying ‘he’s not taking ownership of this situation’ or ‘that’s clearly below the line.’ Though at times it was tongue-in-cheek, it demonstrated that they understood and were capable of implementing the principles of organizational accountability. I felt very proud every time I heard one of those comments.”

Daniel B. Thompson, MAJ, AN, OIC, EMT, 325th Combat Support Hospital
