Article 91 covers insubordinate conduct towards warrant officer, NCO, or PO. This is broken down rather heavily throughout the article covering as many bases and loopholes as possible it seems. After reading the article I have realized that not only did I disregard or fall under two of the categories in the article but I fall under two of the first three. The first one that I fell under was “treats with contempt or is disrespectful in language or deportment toward a warrant officer, noncommissioned officer, or petty officer while that officer is in the execution of his office.” Regardless of what I assumed the situation to be I stepped out of line when I proceeded to call Corporal Delorge a “jackass”. Not only is it being disrespectful in language towards a noncommissioned officer it is breaking the commanders policy on profanity and the use of obscene language.
I have realized that not only was the use of such language unnecessary but I was beyond wrong for using such. One’s professionalism is judged and based on their dialect and use of a vernacular that can be held to high degree and mimicked by the youth that idolizes those of us whom serve in the armed forces. Not only should I realize that not only do I hold a position which may cause younger children to try to repeat my actions, but I am in one that discipline and respect are held in the highest regards. Who will respect the man that causes other people’s children to disrespect them and/or their teachers with foul language that they should not be using in the first place?
It is one thing to step out of line and become disrespectful to a non-commissioned officer, but to go a step further than that by also violating the commanders policy elevates the situation that much further and puts oneself in an even worse situation than they found themselves to begin with. Therefore this part of Article 91 should be looked over and understood by all those serving in the armed forces so they know not to trample...
