There are many reasons why lower enlisted soldiers should respect non-commissioned officers in the military. It is important to respect an non-commissioned officer in order to keep the balance in the work place. Even if respect is not deserved or given back to you, the military still expects you to give them respect because they are appointed above you. Not showing them respect will result in getting yourself in trouble that will make yourself look bad to your other superiors. Punishments will be given out to whoever disrespects or does not listen to a non-commissioned officer. These consequences must be obeyed. Further punishments will be given out to you if these are not followed to every specific detail. Some people say that you should give respect to everyone. Other people say that respect should be earned. I think that respect is a two way street. To get respect you have to give respect. Respect is neither a right nor a privilege, it is something that you earn over time through your actions though in the army it is expected of all lower enlisted to respect the rank not the person. Earned respect builds a stronger relationship between people, and is more stable than demanded respect. Also, true respect must be built on experience, and therefore it is not right to just demand it. When another person earns your respect you work harder to have that same respect returned to you. I think that respect is taught by example, as most good things are. The main thing is to treat…

Retain product 103
If we look into the past financials of Superior, we see that product 103 have been operating at a loss in 2004 and 2005 does not look any better. With a loss of 2 million it is hard to keep the product line operating, but there is other factors that needs to be taken into consideration before illuminating a product line from the business.
Respect within the Military basically means treat others as you would want to be treated. It is one of the basic Army Values. It is by far one of the most important values that we have. It is the one that keeps everyone acting polite and curiosities towards everyone. This is one of the NCO’s basic responsibilities to make sure that everyone has respect. 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…
in the same way when dealing with my leader. It is a major principle and duty of every soldier to keep their chain of command knowledgable.
The chain of command also provides a way for problems to be handled at a lower level. It can also be used as a way of identifying every individuals position and what their responsibilities are. Orders are transmitted down the chain of command by a higher ranked soldier who either execute the order personally, or transmit it down the chain as appropriate,…
limitation, somewhat a universal factor, on logistics and combat mobility – the amount of equipment and supplies an average man might carry into combat. Obvious points came out early in the writing. There is no dispute that a less weighed down soldier moves quicker on the battlefield. However Marshall stepped up another point, which is much less obvious. “Overloading has never steadied any man or made him more courageous.” (page 8) Perhaps more to the point, “Tired men take fright more easily…
