    There is a lot of truth there.

    From my 20 years plus service in the military as an NCO and Officer; all I have to say is that you have to experience to see both sides of the token. Sometimes, seeing outside the looking glass and in-unit gossip doesnt provide the full picture. The bottom line up front is that Senior NCOs need to step up to the plate and address concerns. Plus be joined at the hip with their officer counterparts to fix the observations in the article.

    All generalizations are false. I'll do my best to disprove some of those.

    When I was in the Navy there were all kinds of warnings to officers. Since the Navy paints about anything that doesn't move aboard a ship this particular warning to officers was "Don't stand in one place too long. That is if you didn't want to get painted".

    Another warning was about not referring to the old saying "You salute the uniform, not the man" too often. The comeback was "then just send your uniform out to sea, you can stay ashore".
