Activities for the Armed Services
This column is the third in a series dealing with the preparation needed by those entering the Armed Forces. The other two appeared January 11 and February 8, 1964.
The Armed Forces are highly regimented. They must be so to function effectively and well. A stern and oft-repeated rule in the Forces is: "An order is an order and must be obeyed." Wherever discipline is lax or insubordination flares up, the Armed Forces lose their efficiency, and the morale of the personnel is lowered.
Every individual entering military service should understand why he should follow instructions and obey orders. Obedience should be given intelligently and willingly. The self-disciplined individual adjusts most easily to obeying military orders. The self-willed find obedience difficult and may fret under the necessity. Viewed in the light of these facts, service in the Armed Forces is seen to provide abundant opportunities for growth in character and humility. The Golden Rule should motivate the conduct of all uniformed personnel.
