If I see an NCO or officer appointed over myself not doing the right thing, some soldiers if not I will continue my behavior thinking is it correct.
But now the ehavior has been passed on and leaders will have a harder time dealing with their soldiers.
But here is a question for the NCO’s and Commanders do you respect each other?
Yes, you do need to respect your NCO’s and Commanders.We learned these words before we came in the military.Some soldiers live by these words and others just go by them when they are working or in front of a high rank officer.Respect is one the 7 Army Values and probably one of the most important in today’s Army.Discipline also works alongside respect even though it is not one of the Army Value’s; it falls under Self-less Service.Sometimes in the Military we often lack respect when we don’t truly understand the meaning of the word. We throw around the word 'respect' very glibly, as a single cure-all for everything we do. This is something that everyone has to make sure that they are teaching everyone at an early time once they arrive into the unit. Even when a person first enters the Army they are taught the meaning of respect within the Military. When we show a person curiosity is sets the basics for future meetings and the ability to take care of the person in a time of need. Tell me why I have to respect someone out of uniform if we do not have respect for each other in uniform.Respect within the Military basically means treat others as you would want to be treated. It is by far one of the most important values that we have.
