Since I have joined the army I have learned time and time again how the mistakes of those of senior ranks are worn on the backs of those who…aren’t! Again I find myself caught in a situation where someone above me screws up, and after doing the magic senior-NCO dance, the effects have been shifted to me. I am apparently screwed up because I left a piece of property in the hands of the section that signed for it? They are still signed for it too!
I am growing quite weary of the Army and its lack of personal responsibility. Am I insane that I expect people to own their decisions as I do? People ask me why I plan to ETS and go to college. I think I now have a better explanation. I love the Army, I just hate a lot of the people in it.
