The purpose of this essay is to further my knowledge of the Army NCO support channel, chain of command and why we as Soldiers use them. It is also to inform the parties that may be what I feel loyalty, dedicated service and also my interpretation of Military bearing and Discipline. I am explaining the importance of obeying a lawful order from an NCO and performing that order in a timely manner. The NCO support channel is designed to be subordinate to and supportive of the chain of command. The NCO support channel is not an independent channel. It is mandatory of the users of this channel to ensure that the chain of command is kept informed of actions implemented through the NCO support channel and to eliminate the possibility of…show more content…

Obedience is drilled into a soldier’s head all throughout one’s time in Basic Training. For example, no talking in the chow line, no talking with the hands, head and eyes forward, stand at parade rest, and of course, most importantly, “Yes, Drill Sergeant!” or “No Drill Sergeant!” Those are just a few of the simple orders a new soldier learns to obey in the military. Every order is important to obey no matter how small or big. Military members who fail to obey the lawful orders of their superiors, risk serious consequences. To be a good soldier one must always obey orders and carry them out in a timely manner. It is also essential to obey all lawful orders given without question, “Roger Sergeant,” and move immediately to carry them out. It is equally important to understand the orders given to their fullest in order to carry them out in the quickest and best manner possible. It is also the responsibility of every soldier to not challenge the order given them, for the commanding officer sees the bigger picture. The seven Army Values play a major role in the make-up of a soldier’s ability to follow orders. There are countless reasons why a member of the military should follow the orders that they are given. Every single order is important and relevant even if one doesn’t fully understand it at the time the order is given. One example could be in a combat situation. A mission will most likely go awry if every order is not carried out and

Respect and integrity, what really do those mean? I could look up those words in the Oxford English Dictionary or Websters, or Dictionary.com and give a scientific, perscise and exact answer to these words. And while that tells you what they mean, does that really give their meaning. Well by Dictionary.com's standards respect is a noun that means to hold in esteem or honor, and to show regard or consideration for. And Dictionary.com says that integrity means an adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character, honesty, and the state of being whole, entire, or undiminished as to morality. The Army on the other hand has their own, similar, but specific definitions for these words, they call values, and are one of…show more content…

The Army Value views respect as something that is just between people, yet at the same time it is also something that is between offices. Each rank is expected to show a certain respect for the ranks above them. In some units a private is expected respect a specialist, while both show respect for their sergeants. This has less to do with the specific people then it does with their experience and respect and of their peers and the people who are situated over them. As soldier we respect the ranks that are above us because their peers and other higher Sergeants have seen something in them. Some form of leadership, or the craftsmanship and mastery of their job that they have found some respect for them, and decided that they deserve to be honored for it. These are people who have seen many soldiers, and been in the Army long enough to recognize these traits in a person, and other people should respect that. Not just because of the office they hold but because of their experience that led them to that office. The Army has kind of got it right, in a way. They view respect as a way that we should act towards each other and treat each other. But Respect is still so much more then that. You can not respect just a person, or a rank, or a position, but also someones experience that has led them to where they are. Its more about feelings
