Being late is becoming a more and more common trend among people of all walks of life, especially in the United States Army. This is completely unacceptable and it violates the Army Values, costs the military more money, and reflect very poorly on the soldier and his first line supervisor. There are many methods available to prevent being late as well as proper steps to take once you know you are going to be late and there is nothing else you can do about it. The Army Values, Leadership, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. When you are late to anything, whether it be a formation or appointment, it goes against nearly all of these values that are instilled in all soldiers.
In order to respect the commands and authority of a NCO, one must understand the responsibilities inherent to their role. A noncommissioned officer’s duties are numerous and must be taken seriously. An NCOs duty includes taking care of soldiers, which is your priority. Corporals and sergeants do this by developing a genuine concern for their soldiers’ well-being. Leaders must know and understand their soldiers well enough to train them as individuals and teams to operate proficiently.
Articles in the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) that require explanation will be presented in such a way to ensure that Soldiers are fully aware of the controls and obligations imposed on them by virtue of their military service (see Art 137, UCMJ). (c) Properly training their Soldiers and ensuring that both Soldiers and equipment are in the proper state of readiness at all times.

Soldiers must be committed to accomplishing the mission through the unit cohesion developed as a result of a healthy leadership climate established by the command. Leaders at all levels promote the individual readiness of their Soldiers by developing competence and confidence in their subordinates.

Although my decision to enlist had been predetermined, there was an overwhelming abundance of propaganda that was downright humerous. Even before I began training, I knew I was less than ideal in terms of fitness; the training was nasty work. Most soldiers found more monotony than the excitement they were expecting, but I was prepared in terms of my mindset. Unfortunately I wasn’t so in training.

Every link in the chain of command must trust each other from the very top to the very bottom. When trust is lost at any level it can cause many problems within the unit and affect the overall mission. The chain of command must trust that you can perform your duties. Junior enlisted soldiers perform their duties to standard AND to the best of their ability. This means performing individual tasks identified by first line supervisors based on the unit’s mission.
It is a code by which most of them carry on even as they perform their duties and tasks in the Army. Times of need are what help in shaping the army’s culture, and assist them in becoming more than just an institution that is meant to serve and protect.

How we perceive/appraise an event (stressor) plays a very large role in whether the stressor triggers our fight/flight response.

That changed my life a lot. Now I was in a situation where I had to focus on work to provide for my mother. Bills just kept building up and it got to the point where I was working too much, I was too tired to go to school. So I was kicked out because I missed too many days. I can go on and on about my life after that but that would end up being a book instead of a paper.
