I am here to explain what military discipline, military respect, and disrespect are and the history behind these acts are.

Disrespect is not tolerated threw out the ranks of the army and therefore should not be dished out unless you want it to come back and spit in your face. The history of disrespect in the army is if it happened in the older days of the army you would either get the shit smoked out of you or you would get the living shit beat out of you or anyone who was to disrespect a Non-Commissioned Officer would get the same exact treatment and there is none of this favoritisms like it is now days. Disrespect in my opinion is when a person of lower rank flat out tells the Non-Commissioned Officer that they are not going to do what they have been told. Not the same as saying well Sgt I have not started that half of the task yet I have only just started the first portion but I will get it done like you have asked me to. Or when the one lower rank just simply does not understand what was given out and says something about it to learn the standard. Now I will go into describing how the NCO started.

In the early days of the American Revolution, little standardization of NCO duties or responsibilities existed. In 1778, during the long hard winter at Valley Forge, Inspector General Friedrich von Steuben standardized NCO duties and responsibilities in his Regulations for the Order and Discipline of the Troops of the United States.

Respect and integrity, what really do those mean? I could look up those words in the Oxford English Dictionary or Websters, or Dictionary.com and give a scientific, perscise and exact answer to these words.

The Army Value views respect as something that is just between people, yet at the same time it is also something that is between offices. Each rank is expected to show a certain respect for the ranks above them. In some units a private is expected respect a specialist, while both show respect for their sergeants. This has less to do with the specific people then it does with their experience and respect and of their peers and the people who are situated over them. As soldier we respect the ranks that are above us because their peers and other higher Sergeants have seen something in them. Some form of leadership, or the craftsmanship and mastery of their job that they have found some respect for them, and decided that they deserve to be honored for it. These are people who have seen many soldiers, and been in the Army long enough to recognize these traits in a person, and other people should respect that. Not just because of the office they hold but because of their experience that led them to that office. The Army has kind of got it right, in a way. They view respect as a way that we should act towards each other and treat each other. But Respect is still so much more then that.
