Here's what Schumacher said he's learned from being around Army soldiers:
"When AJ (Alan Johnson) left is a perfect example. Everyone said, 'You know what, when a general retires, we don't wave the white flag and give up. We hire a new general , and we smile, and we go kick butt.' That's exactly the kind of comments, what I get day in-and-day-out, from these great people. I enjoy it more than people could ever imagine. Surrounding yourself with great people, and it's my pleasure to win for them. I also get to be part of something a lot bigger than myself. As people start to get to know me, they find out, when AJ left, people said: 'What are you going to do now? You're never going to win.' I said, 'Really? I've got a beautiful wife and three beautiful kids. I win every day.' My life doesn't revolve around having to win. It revolves around having to figure out how to win and enjoy the challenge. That comes from those soldiers. It's the greatest thing I've ever been a part of."
