MSOS CO's Expectations on Personal Conduct

Outside my office is a suggestion box, now named CHAOS for "Colonel has an Outstanding Solution."

If you see something you think needs to be addressed, or have an idea that you think should be heard, put it in there. I will read and entertain all of them.

Don't worry about the bubble on the ceiling above the box, we had that camera disabled long ago. If you would rather provide your suggestion in private feel free to complete this survey at the below link.
