Oh no don't you dare even think about getting your buddy into trouble. The whole point is to learn to act as a team and lookout for each other. Never ever do anything to make your team look bad because the cadre will root you out like festering ingrown hair. Your team is your life, learn it know it, and never forget it.

Don't worry, your buddy will get himself into enough trouble all by his lonesome. When it does happen you can just picture this post in your mind and smile (on the inside).

Its becoming more and more a purple world (Joint) guys...I recommend you learn the rank and protocol for the other services as well. Hard to believe, but there are service men and women of every service and literally every rank walking the halls of the Pentagon.

Okay so in the same lines as the SIR...
With the US allies and everyone that is in Iraq all the different nations, do you salute and say sir to officers and NCO's outside your countries branches? I know that you do in the different branches within the US and i would imagine you would for the other countries.

ok i was walking on my base a few years ago and had an american officer walk past me, now he wasn't wearing head gear therefore we don't salute but he threw a wobbley that we didn't................is this usual?

and why do you have to say sir yes sir after every word? or is it just sentence?

american military has some strange things going on there..............i'd defo be counted as a blonde with acting dumb if i was there!!!

In recruit training you'll learn the rank for all the Armed Forces. However you abide by Naval Service Protocols when dealing with members of any service.

When you deploy you will be given a brief concerning rank recognition etc.

along those same lines - do you salute enemy officers?

kind a stupid question i know you don't in battle cause he would shoot you but like in meetings to the officers show their respect in another fashion or is it just understood "you don't like me and i dang sure don't like you"?
