Now Leaders tell the subordinates to answer the why -(Quit your crying)Sometimes has the tendency to be used when leaders do not want to hear what others think about certain situations -(Get over it)Sometimes an answer from leaders who really don't know why they have to accomplish something. -( I cannot take this new army or Nintendo generation)This statement is made by NCOs that are told they cannot use foul language to describe soldiers both IET and active duty. They have to call them privates or soldiers as though this has changed the standard. -(I own you 24/7)-Quality of life Killer-Re-Up Killer. We know our soldiers are to be ready at a moments notice.

“People are not in the Army, People are the people I do not mean Personnel...I mean living breathing human beings. They have needs and abilities. They have weaknesses and faults; and they have means. They are at the heart of our preparedness... and this preparedness--as a nation--depends upon the spirit of our soldiers. It is the spirit that gives the Army... life. Without it we cannot succeed.” - General Creighton Abrams Army Chief of Staff
