There are many reasons why a soldier should follow the orders they are given and every single one is important. An order is a tasking given to a soldier of something that needs to be done in a timely and efficient manner. The three main reasons why it is important for a soldier to follow the orders they are given is to be combat effective, disciplined, and to just be a good soldier. When a soldier doesn't follow the orders they are given in not only hurts themselfs but it hurts the team and the goals of the mission. When the mission objectives are hurt by not following orders this weakens everything that is necessary to win the war.

If a soldier doesn't follow orders while in a combat zone this makes them combat ineffective and when a one single soldier in a unit is combat ineffective this slows down the progress of winning by making the leaders deal with a soldier who can't help with the workload of the unit. For example if a NCO tells a private to prepare a vehicle for something like that before they roll out for mission the NCO is telling the private to get the vehicle or whatever ready so they can be fully functional and help with the fight even if the private doesn't know why they are being told why they are doing this the soldier needs to execute the order without question. When a soldier executes an order quickly and to standard they tremdously help with the effectivness of the unit even if they don't know it because every single soldier is vital to winning the war and a soldier that is able to follow orders and execute them effectivly and to standard they strengthen the unit and increase the moral of the unit by making it to where the leadership doesn't have to worry about if that soldier is going to do that right and this relieves tension from the leaders and other members in the unit because then the work is evenly spread out and everyone works like a team to get the job done quickly and to standard

Discipline is to follow orders...
