All it takes is a bad CO or EX to ruin the entire unit.
POLITICIANS & DIAPERS NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON

A person properly schooled in right and wrong is safe with any weapon. A person with no idea of good and evil is unsafe with a knitting needle, or the cap from a ballpoint pen.

I remain pessimistic given the way BATF and the anti gun crowd have become tape worms in the guts of the Republic. - toad

Wasn't that the premise behind "From Here to Eternity", Fireball Forward (with Ben Gazzara as a mustang general), and "12 O'Clock High"?
"12 O'Clock High is studied and discussed in business schools as an example of ineffective leadership.
And wasn't there a WW2 Submarine movie that dealt with the same issues?
The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.
E.g.:
"I believe in Freedom of Speech, but". . .
"I support the Second Amendment, but". . .
