DISRESPECT TO A NCO
The definition of disrespect is lack of respect, discourtesy, or rudeness. In the United States Military, there are rules and regulations you must follow, one of them being respect to a non-commissioned officer. No matter the circumstance, whether you agree or not, you are not allowed to talk back, physically fight back, or question judgment. If this does happen, there are consequences and repercussions from the actions taken on your part. Uniformed Code of Military Justice states that you can ultimately be separated, honorably or dishonorably for actions taken on your part. You can also receive an article fifteen, which takes your hard earned money away from you and your family. It also will take any free time you may have, and can also limit your travel by telling you where you are allowed to go. The importance of maintaining correct protocol and Military bearing on and off duty is essential, because to show disrespect to an NCO when in uniform could cause disrespect among civilians about the military in general. Any disrespect towards my leaders, from team leader on up to Sergeant Major of the Army, along with the Platoon Leader on up to the Army Chief of Staff, or the President of the United States, can have a negative effect on the Morale and Welfare of those around me, junior or senior. When a NCO is disrespected in front of other soldiers, junior or senior, if caused a ripple effect in the chain of command. The subordenent soldiers see the disrespectful behavior and begin to think it is okay, even though, it is very wrong. Now that the behavior has been passed on, the leaders will have a harder time dealing with their soldiers. This should include leaving non work-related issues at home, and away from the workplace. They can get in the way of performing our duties as soldiers, especially when the disagreement is with another soldier, or an

    Respect to Ncos

    • 534 Words
    • 3 Pages

    Giving respect to a NCO is an important role as a soldier in the United States military. Respect is one of the core Army values that we are taught upon us first entering the military. NCO's have earned the respect throughout the years of service they have given and by proving to their chain of command that they have the ability to lead soldiers both on and off the battlefield. They have gone to schools put in the hard work that is required to lead soldiers by mentoring them, not only about the military aspect of their lives, but also about their personal lives also. They make sure that soldiers are physically and mentally fit. If that is not enough of a reason to respect a NCO then how about because it is required of all soldiers to respect not just NCO's but also other soldiers in the military including themselves. The most important reason to show respect to a NCO is that we would not be where we are today if we did not have respect for them. I mean respect is the one thing that makes things work so smoothly in the military. When we have respect for NCO's we are able to keep our attention on the mission at hand instead of having to disciplining soldiers. Baron Von Steuben was the first to recognize that in order to have a successful military we would need to put into effect certain values, one of which was respect for NCO's. Now all this happened back during the Revolutionary War, when we were fighting for our release from the tyrannical rule of the British King because we were not getting the rights and respect we were supposed to be getting. So see respect is one of the reasons we are able to live in this great country. If we did not show respect towards our NCO's, then we would have a horrible breakdown in communication between soldiers and their leaders. And when there is a breakdown in communication it is hard for our military to perform at its best ability leaving us vulnerable to attack, causing casualties not only to the military but quite…

    The rank structure goes back to the 1700’s. The rank structure was put into place so that the soldiers had someone that was there to give out orders; also the rank structure was there to teach the newer enlisted respect. If the rank structure was not in place, there would be no order or discipline in the army. The United States ARMY is the World’s strongest army. And it is all because we have order and discipline threw out all of the ranks. When we know that the person out ranks us we need to show the proper respect that they have earned through being in the military and doing their job. As a soldier that has had a lot of mistakes with respecting the rank structure, I know how hard it may be. But all in all you want to respect the persons rank. It does not do anything to the person that you are disrespecting. The one thing that it does do is make them mad. And in all honesty they have a reason to get mad. They have earned their way. They were a private once. It is not like they joined the army as a sergeant. They had to fight their way through the ranks just as most of us have and probably will continue to do. I have always lived by the saying; respect is earned, not given. Well I realized something. The noncommissioned officer has earned the respect that must be shown. If you do not see that they deserve respect. Guess what, the army feels and knows that they do deserve the respect of all their subordinates. So let us all do our selves a favor. Just bite your tongue and drive on. All you have to say is check, roger, or hooah. This…

    Respect in the Military

    Respect, especially in the Army is a very important value to live by. It is much more than just talking kindly and listening to someone. It is the process of taking into consideration someone’s emotions, feelings and needs. You must also focus on their ideas, thoughts, and preferences. It is showing someone that you value their time; that you care what they have to say. Showing someone respect allows that person to know and acknowledge that you are tracking them and that you comprehend and believe in what they are saying, It is important to allow someone to feel your respect for them. It will ease the conversation and create trust. Behavior and attitude will allow the person demanding respect to feel that respect. When we respect each other, there are fewer conflicts. People get along easier and avoid the un-necessary drama associated with a lack of respect. For those of us in the military, this is very important.…

    Core Army Values

    • 364 Words
    • 2 Pages

    Of the core values represented in the seven Core Army Values, respect is the one that I think is of the utmost importance, in that embodied in that one value is the formula for success in all the others. It is defined as treating others as we with to be treated - to treat others "with dignity and respect while expecting others to do the same." It's that quality that allows us to exceed our greatest expectations; to function cohesively as a unit for all its diversity - all its different creeds and races, genders and religions - respect is the glue that holds our military institution together in times of war and of peace: at home and abroad. In foreign lands, it's the tie that binds us against a common foe; and domestically, it's the root of the idealism at work at the foundation of our country and its continued greatness in the world. We can only do as much good as respect allows us to do. We respect one another, and we respect the people that we serve, and we respect the foes that we combat in the name of freedom. Respect, for me, is a vital piece of the puzzle for a working soldier. It is for that reason that I so sincerely wish to extend my apologies for disrespecting my Staff Sergeant during Army Specialist Training and to articulate in this written apology all that I understand of Respect and the ways in which disrespecting my mentor and superior officer demeans me, my service, and ultimately my army and the country that I love. I am ashamed that I did not uphold this key core value because I do understand the degree to which it bolsters the integrity of our institution while making possible all of the things that it does at home and abroad. I'm mortified by my actions as well because as this…

    Now, when approached by my first line supervisor about my hair, I failed to go to parade rest and face him. Disrespect to a Non-Commissioned Officer of the United States Army is totally and completely unacceptable. NCO's are the leaders of the Army, and should be treated with respect as such. NCO's are your leaders that are going to provide the soldier with the knowledge of soldier skills and provide the soldier with the skills applicable to his job. Disrespect has no place in the work place, but especially towards NCO's. Disrespect towards NCO's should not and will not be tolerated. Disrespect can be perceived from many different actions such as the rolling of a soldier's eyes to cursing an NCO out. However, disrespect can result in many different repercussions such as a smoking, a counseling, and the NCO can even go as far as recommending the soldier for an article 15,…

    Respect it is something everyone wants, not many have, and few will give. Some people would appreciate having a little bit of respect from others, and some should make efforts to show some more respect. Unfortunately, this does not happen all the time. Maybe this is because respect is not clearly understood. What is respect? The dictionary defines it as an act of giving particular attention or high or special regard. Another definition shows respect as a feeling or attitude of admiration and deference toward somebody or something. This does not explain completely what it is, but at least it gives us an idea about what it may be. it is something that you earn over time through your actions. So how does this relate to the military? Well, when a person enlists in the United States Military, active duty or reserve, they take the following oath; “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.” Right there you are making a promise to the United States Military. Before you even put on the uniform, you promise you’ll obey the orders of the President and the orders of the officers appointed over you. Military discipline and effectiveness is built on the foundation of obedience to orders. Brand new privates are taught to obey, immediately and without question, orders from their superiors, right from day one of boot camp. Almost every soldier can tell you that obedience was drilled into their heads at one point in Basic Training. For example, no talking in the chow line, don’t talk with your hands, head and eyes forward, no smiling, stand a parade rest, and of course the famous “Yes Drill…
