The TD in my SAR team is also a lot like that. I really feel sorry for those poor applicants when they just join the team... He is an ex Air Force officer and tends to forget it is a team and not a regiment.
Recently we talked about how he treats handlers, not that I matter that much how the crew feels either, but all that pressure he puts into them goes down the leash and you end up with stressed dogs. That I do care. Just like with your e-mail, his answer was "I don't think so" and walked away. But later I remembered him the subject with a serie of nasty jokes, we had a serious talk and, if he has not changed, at least walks away when he feels he is about to explode, LOL!
But he is also the kind of guy you have to earn his respect. It had been years from the last time he yelled at me, but on the contrary, he asks for my opinion more and more often. Knowing him, it by itself makes me more proud than the compliments of a hundred of people.
