He earned the nick name " Fighting Joe" while in Iraq when he led a combat team in the initial invasion. He writes a letter of condolence for american service man killed in Afghanistan, and he does the same for the service men from other countries that are also fight in Afghanistan.

Dunford cares about his soldiers. Having a caring trait is one reason he is a good leader.
He tries to help all of his soldier.
His leadership Traits
Dunford shows many leadership traits. I'll try to be calm and caring like Dunford. I think that he's caring is his most important leadership trait, because it is what makes him try to get all of his soldiers home alive. The fact that he stays calm during battle is why I would follow him. Not every leader needs to show the same leadership traits, because leadership come in many forms.
