Always did think General Carlist Rieekan was a good tactician and leader. He even had a bounty on his head, one large enough to buy a moon in the Core Planets of an entire planet in the Outer Rim Systems...I mean you don't get a bounty on your head that big without causing trouble.
A notable example on Hoth as soon as he was put in charge, he made an evacuation plan that would be ready at a moments notice. He put Major Derlin in charge of security which was a good move and when the Tauntauns became agitated he sought to work with the instincts of the animals rather then away, there was a lot of things Rieekan did for Echo Base and beyond that.
Yeah, Rieekan is a pretty smart guy. He did a lot for the Rebellion and deserves to be recognized for it... *hint*
