I know its not you
Its just avatar combined with the first statement.. It took me a minute
My experiences were overall good
What I saw however goes back a lot to the answers I gave
Most of what I saw were people punching clocks and time cards
a lot of butte kissing
Leaders I can count on my hands to this day. Real ones and not caretakers
Three of theem did not like me.. Nor I them
However, as one of them said.
I can count on him to be honest and help prevent troubles before they reach me. What have you done for the Navy today chief?
Yes he gives me half my headaches, but I have half the paperwork and can get whatever I need..
The chief tried to argue with the Lt.
"Oh.. Make no mistake, I dispise him and his methods.. However I have come to learn he operates from higher motives then career advancement. He wont
stab me in the back because he it will help his career. Three time he has the opportunity and has not ..
It was the advancement part in that statement
The Lt. Doesnt have be vetted per say
(or captain in the other branches)
Just be the type that is the country club type
They want to be someone
You mentioned grand strategy
Why even bring them into the loop
His superior will have issues
on up the chain All you have to do is give hints never an order
This way no strings.. You can mold a whole generation of military this way
It works the same way from the lower levels
The question we would need to start with is why not how.. How is just engineering?
