Chief Lairsey was THE BEST SNI ever. He is caring, open-minded, and selfless. He was like a father figure to all the cadets in ROTC.
Probably the best NSI I've known for the NJROTC program. Easy to speak with, informative, open-minded, and eager to help, he'll always find some way to get you out of whatever bind you find yourself in, one way or the other.
Yes of course he is the best and coolest instructor in ROTC.
