Especially in the military world knowing where your gear is at is very essential to mission accomplishment. That’s why in the military we do so many sl-3 and gear inventories. Now in my MOS accountability of your gear is very important. Because if you are missing like a high power amplifier, or a modem, you cannot complete the mission. If you cannot complete the mission then communications cannot go up and support all the troops out there on the front lines.
The culture would make their soldiers very brave and loyal in battle, this was done not by upholding a high standard or praising the soldiers from achievements in battle but by harshly reprimanding them. The soldiers during this era were so immensely afraid of the punishment that would come from deserting the war that they would give their lives to the enemy by risking it all. As shown in the text “Some men who have lost a shield or sword or another part of their arms in battle heedlessly throw themselves against the enemy, hoping either to recover what the lost, or to escape the inevitable disgrace and the insults of their relatives by suffering injury or death” (Hunt et. Al 2009, 154). It was derived from this excerpt, that the soldiers during Polybius’ reign were so scared to be punished or even ridiculed for leaving their post in battle or failing that they would bravely throw themselves into the enemies position to regain their arms or face death.
Its their job to uphold and make sure the soliders under them are held to the standard. I understand why accountability is such a huge deal in the military. Not being where u should be can cuz others to work harder to pick up the the extra work that you should be doing. There could be something going on at the unit that all soliders need to attend and missing one person could cause others to suffer. Or like the incident that happen back in Nov. 2009 on ft. hood.
Regulations are put in place by the Marine Corps to protect its personnel and to essentially protect them from themselves. If there were no rules and regulations in the Marine Corps it would be impossible to be a force in readiness. The mission would not get completed and the Marine Corps would fail. Rules are put in place in the barracks to keep the barracks a suitable place to live and the keep the resident’s safe from outsiders. A staff is put in place to make sure that the barracks is in regulations with Marine Corps order.
Effectiveness, rather than pure efficiency, is the key to the work of professionals—the sick want a cure, the accused want exoneration, and the defenseless seek security. “I am an expert and I am a professional” (the ninth statement of The Soldier’s Creed) eludes to our duty as soldiers to know our job and be able to perform it under any circumstance imaginable without hesitation or question. Second, professionals are capable of making judgment calls, applying their skills and reaching informed decisions in situations that the general public cannot, because they have not received the relevant training. Professions create their own standards of performance and codes of ethics to maintain their effectiveness. One of the examples of professional ethics is the Hippocratic Oath to which medical doctors adhere to.
It is by far the finest book I have read, and it continues to impact how I lead. 2. We Were Soldiers Once … and Young by Harold G. Moore and Joseph L. Galloway Pete Kilner: I read this while at the Infantry Officer Advanced Course. I was struck by how Hal Moore and his commanders knew their Soldiers, by the things Moore did to create a winning culture and by how unpredictable war can be. Another big takeaway was that despite the brutality and emotions of combat, a leader must remain calm, see the big picture, and anticipate the “next steps” for his unit and the enemy.
While I agree with General Dempsey’s view on how to form the Army into a “Profession of Arms,” I don’t think today’s Army is quite there yet. I think The Army is going in the right direction but it will take time to change the culture. We need to understand that it is virtually impossible for all Soldiers to be professionals based on experience and expertise alone. We need to understand that not all Soldiers join today for honor, tradition, and/or wanting to be a part of a team. Soldiers are joining the military more and more to have a secure job with benefits for themselves and their family members.
Moping out of the airport trying to hide my face but everyone still stared. Nobody would understand. Military girlfriends have a bigger role than they get credit for. When committing to a relationship with a man in the forces, a commitment will also be made to yourself to a life in the military. Even though not signing in the technical sense, these military significant others are still going to be bound by certain rules and regulations that only apply to this kind of relationship (Crawford).
It was important for them to be resourceful so they could find food and not starve if one day put in that situation. Self-discipline respect were also necessary to be taught because that also ties into being fit for battle. Although the Spartan educational system is seriously flawed because it discourages reading, foreign travel, and the theater (Document D). The Spartans saw these as distractions and threats to Spartan unity. Those who charge Sparta’s education with being too harsh, need to remember the heroic stand by Spartan warriors at Thermopylae.
Second, many law enforcement agencies are staffed by military veterans and are, in fact, organized along paramilitary lines. Law enforcement officers, tend to take military service very seriously and will not trust or respect someone who did not serve honorably. In some states, those with dishonorable discharges are specifically forbidden from serving as law enforcement officer by state law. It is sometimes possible, in rare cases, to appeal to the military and have a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge upgraded to a general discharge. However, this is not likely to make a difference to the hiring
