As an Infantry officer, Monte developed an understanding of military tactics and strategy. This knowledge was put to good use when he was assigned as an instructor at the Army Command and General Staff College where he taught tactics to the Army’s future staff officers and generals for three years. He also studied the martial arts, earning a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and taught wrestling, self-defense, and coached the West Point Karate club at the Military Academy.
