Another good thing is to know when to lead but still be able to fallow. I have a hard time fallowing now because of some of the leadership I have had on my two tours. On my last tour my troop leader knew it all because he had read a couple of books on Afghanistan and all of the work up training we had done. Some leadership can’t find the time to stop and listen to someone lower then them because their way is always going to be the right way. You must be able to jump when told to jump and if you didn’t jump high enough be able to take the yelling that will fallow. Please know you must be unable to think for yourself, that is why you have leadership but once you make your way up the ranks you might turn in to a retard because of the years that you weren’t aloud to think for your self. I am not a good soldier anymore because I can not react in the right way, when I hear that bang I freeze and don’t want to fight. When I am push around my insides want to fight but I feel that I will go to far due to I am not in a war zone anymore.
