I'm sorry but I miss having "NCO business" time and actual corrective training that worked. Make a PVT. carry a 10 lb brick with his face drawn on it and his ID info on it and he won't lose his ID anymore, but now that is not allowed you can only counsel them and build a paper trail. I wouldn't have held my tongue lol I've seen Generals discount what XO's and Battalion Staff say and defer to a Chief on issues even when it went against damn near every other officer in the room. Chiefs kick ass I always was jealous of ours. He never went to formation and if he was specifically requested to he showed up in grease covered overalls like WTF do ya'll want he would stand off by himself not in the formation with a big ass dip in and his larger than life mustache lol him and his wife (a korean woman he married 30 years ago at Camp Stanley) owned a bar off post too.
Unfortunately it has always been so and it will be always so.How many generals good generals do you know that had started their career as private soldiers?None or just a few.Many of them just came from officers academies and colleges.And they have never spent a single day on the field by doing the "real thing"(a real combat situation). They often haven't a clue on what are private soldiers needs or what are the best tactics to win a war.I remember a guy that was used to say "I went to the officers academy and I know better than you what has to be done.You're just a ****in' private soldier!".His unit has been almost completely destroyed a week later, and he was killed in action because he led AN OPEN CHARGE AGAINST A MACHINEGUN POSITION(WHAT AN IDIOT!!!!)

Two of my Older cousins, although both went to college, were not in "West Point",..but Did the real deed. On e ret. as AF chief of Staff in 2011, the other is still a serving 2-Star but turns 65 next year...that will make him OTD with 43 Yrs total....and he was NOT an REMF....
