hen I rolled into boot camp in 1995, I had absolutely no desire to follow orders. The idea that some body could tell me what to do, and that Navys boot camp is manned by highly ers, who used their powers of persua sion to teach me the way of the military world. learned that locking my knees on while standing in formation was a bad idea, I began to realize that all of the orders that were being directed my way were for a reason. Recently, I encountered a group of Sailors heading out on a GTMO liberty adventure. One member of the group was wearing a shirt that was basically a carwash rag without any sleeves and a hole to slip his head through. gave me the stink-eye and walked back to me. I asked. As I pulled the scalp back over my forehead and fought the urge to call Davy Jones up from the depths of GTMOs harbor, eled a long way from my barracks to get here so I am going to Right about now I began to lose a bit of my cool and made it crystal clear exactly what this Sailor was going to do and let Once again I got the stink eye and am sure some choice names where running through his head about at that %^#@ Master Chief rode down the hill on his bike (BAH..BAH.. BUUUUM). As military members we are issued orders from day one of ourselves in a lot of trouble when orders are not followed. Now does this mean that we shouldnt go about our busi is important that we understand the orders we are issued to ensure successful completion of the mission. Now, had the aforementioned Sailor said something along sionalism at all times. Not to mention, the CMC is going to be heading this way any second and is going to tear you a new one if he sees that shirt. Orders, rules, regulations, policies and standards are vital it can seem like we are overwhelmed with directions, these guides are there for a reason and we are expected to follow them.
