•Taft was born in Cincinnati in 1857. His father, Alphonso Taft, was a #USAttorneyGeneral and #SecretaryofWar under #President #UlyssesSGrant. Taft attended Yale and, like his father, was a member of Skull and Bones. After becoming a lawyer, he was appointed a judge while still in his twenties.•Alphonso Taft was the first in the Taft family #politicaldynasty. His son, William Howard Taft, was the 27th President of the United States and the 10th Chief Justice of the United States, and was a member of Yale's Skull and Bones like his founder father; another son, Charles Phelps Taft, supported the founding of Wolf's Head Society at Yale; both his grandson and great-grandson, Robert A. Taft I (also Skull and Bones) and Robert Taft Jr., were U.S. Senators; his great-great-grandson, Robert A. Taft II, was the Governor of Ohio from 1999 until 2007. William Howard Taft III was ambassador to Ireland; William Howard Taft IV worked in several Republican administrations, most recently that of George W. Bush.

The greatest leader of our time. So lucky and proud to have worked for him. #secretaryofdefense #secretaryofwar #maddog #80sbabygwotmademe

June 4 1855 – Major Henry C. Wayne departs New York aboard the USS Supply to procure camels to establish the #USCamelCorps.•In 1836, Major George H. Crosman, #UnitedStatesArmy, who was convinced from his experiences in the #Indianwars in #Florida that camels would be useful as beasts of burden, encouraged the War Department to use #camels for #transportation. In 1848 or earlier, Major Henry C. Wayne conducted a more detailed study and recommended importation of camels to the War Department. Wayne's opinions agreed with those of then Senator #JeffersonDavis of #Mississippi•Davis was unsuccessful until he was appointed as #SecretaryofWar in 1853. When US forces were required to operate in arid and desert regions, the #President and #Congress began to take the idea seriously. Newly appointed as Secretary of War by President #FranklinPierce, Davis found the Army needed to improve transportation in the #southwesternUS, which he and most observers thought a great desert. In his annual report for 1854, Davis wrote, "I again invite attention to the advantages to be anticipated from the use of camels and dromedaries for military and other purposes....":10 On March 3, 1855, the US Congress appropriated $30,000 for the project.

A truly great and humble leader, this goes back to Marine Corps leadership principles where the highest ranking Marine eats last. #usmc #mattis #maddog #lordcommandermattis #secretaryofdefense #secretaryofwar
