Lying to an Nco

Good Essays
First thing I am going to talk about in this essay is the seven army values and the importance of them to the army. In the US army we are taught to live by the Seven Army Values. They are broken down to us in the acronym “LDRSHIP”. Loyalty “Bear true faith and allegiance to the U.S. constitution, the Army, and other soldiers. ” Duty “ Fulfill you obligations. ” Respect “ Treat people as they should be treated . ” Selfless Service “ Put the welfare of the nation, the Army and your subordinates above your own. ” Honor “ Live up to the army values.” Integrity “Do what is right legally and morally. ” and Personal Courage “ Face fear, danger or adversity (physical or moral). ” We are all drilled on these seven army values from day one of basic training. First we commit them to memory. Then we learn to live by them. Lying is looked upon in society as one of the most deceiving and unforgiving acts known to man. The definition alone speaks volumes as to why a person, or a whole nation for that matter, would think of this act of incompetence in such a negative eyesight. To lie means to make an untrue statement with the intent to deceive, according to the Webster’s dictionary. It also means to simply create a false or misleading statement on purpose. So why does it go on in the military? Everyone in the military is guilty of lying one or more time in their military career or even as a civilian. In the military lying to a non-commissioned officer is frowned upon, let alone a senior NCO. Soldiers lie to get out sticky situations, And or to cover their own tracks when they mess up. It is wrong to lie to a sergeant or even anyone. Once you tell one lie you have to keep telling lies to keep covering yourself. When does it all end? It never ends till you get caught. Lying is wrong period not just to an NCO. It is more wrong because these are the people you are suppose to go to if you are in trouble or are having problems. These are the people you are suppose to be able to trust,

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.

    domains), there are NCOs from all branches that I hope will learn something. Keep in mind that my comments are geared more towards the Army realm, but the basics are service wide. I’m not going to speak about the officers, just the NCOs. In my mind there are two types of people that attain the grade E5: Sergeants and NCOs. Some people will probably disagree with me about which definition is better. In the mind of CJ, anyone can be a sergeant. But, it takes a leader to be an NCO. The reason I say…
