So it comes as no surprise that Korea's first woman military officer Jeong Ji-eun, pictured above, reads Sun Tzu's Art of War. In fact, The Art of War is her "all-time favorite" book. From her interview, it's apparent to me the wise leadership lessons she has learned from the book to mentor her platoon, to earn their trust and respect.
Jeong Ji-eun's personal strength and resourcefulness are apparent, too, as this 5 foot 2 inch commander was the only woman out of 630 soldiers to apply for the U.S. Army Expert Infantryman Badge (EIB). Beating the odds, she was also the only woman to pass and earn the EIB. Only 130 other soldiers received the badge.
