2018-45 - The Strength of Group Work...

Once a US president went out to see the situation of the city.

Somewhere a group of soldiers was trying to lift a large branch of a tree from their way. The Corporal was standing by their side instructing them to work harder, but they were unable to move it.

A stranger was riding on his horse and he observed what was going on. He said to the Corporal, "If you help them they will be able to move it. Why don't you help them?" The Corporal replied, "That is not my job, I am the Corporal. It is their work, they should do it."

The stranger did not hesitate a moment, he immediately dismounted from his horse, and helped the group of the soldiers to move the log. This additional strength helped them to move the log. After moving it, the stranger mounted his horse and said to the Corporal, "Next time you need to move something heavy and you need help, call for the Commander-In-Chief." and went his way.

It was then that the men realized that the stranger was none other than George Washington the first President of the United States, the Commander-In-Chief of the army.
