Respect Nco's

Good Essays
Respecting NCO’s is important in in a garrison environment is important because it instills good order and discipline. Order and discipline are needed in all aspects of the Army. Without it, ultimately people could die or suffer grievous bodily injury. Order and discipline is what keeps your head down in a firefight. Order and discipline is what keeps you standing tall in 100 degree Georgia heat during a change of command ceremony that you don’t want to be at. Non-Commissioned officers are known as the backbone of the Army. They have the responsibility of leading soldiers and getting the job done while the Commissioned Officer creates the conditions to get the job done. In my opinion, NCO’s are leaders more so than the officers. Throughout my time in the military I have been able to be under the leadership of both good and bad NCO’s. The good NCO’s showed me the right way to do things. While in Afghanistan, one of the two team leaders really showed what it means to do the job. If I had difficulty carrying out a task he’d either show me how to do it properly, or a more efficient way of doing it. But he did it in such manner that I began to figure it out myself. I was able to quickly and effectively meld into that team after being moved there from my previous team leader. He would always place his soldiers’ needs before the needs of his own. When the unit we were supporting ordered us to carry out guard shifts, though we had orders that superseded that, he stepped up to the plate and took the brunt of it. He stood not only the tower shifts he was assigned, but took mine and the other soldier assigned to the teams place.

On the other hand, my first team leader in Afghanistan was the complete opposite. To me, a Private First Class at the time, it seemed that his own needs were paramount to my own needs. For example, my personally owned vehicle had been the care of a soldier in a different company when I deployed. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the

    and so they too can train the Marines they will have under them in the future. NCO’s have earned respect and their rank and should never be disrespected or talked back to. They were given their rank for a reason because they are trusted to take charge of Marines under them and set them up for success. Disrespecting an NCO is uncalled for and looks bad on that NCO, your peers, team leaders and even the Staff NCO’s and Officers who put that NCO in charge of you. It shows that what your leaders…

Respect has been a major issue throughout time. Towns and countries alike were crushed simply for disrespecting their invaders. Vlad Dracul, a Transylvanian ruler most feared for his barbaric behavior used to cut off the heads nonconformist villagers and place them on stakes outside his castle. The reason this issue is so…

    Respect and what it means By: -PFC- C, Mullins 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.

    Respect I believe that respect for one other is a big social issue we face today in our generation. We see this problem in teens, in so many places. For example, in school there is a lack of respect for students from other fellow students. At home there is a lack of respect from the children to their parents. There is also a lack of respect from young adults to most authoritative figures. People in school today never listen to the teachers. They talk when the teacher is talking, and totally disrespect…
