How do you go about correcting someone of a much higher rank (i.e. MAJ, etc.) or someone that obviously has more years of service than yourself? By corrections I'm referring to things like out of uniform, not illegal or immoral. Ex: someone was walking past me that was wearing a sweatshirt instead of ACU top (we were outside), or wearing covers indoors, etc. etc.

Respectfully... always... regardless for Rank. <br><br>Shortly after i arrived to the 173rd I saw a soldier walking away from the Battalion/DCO Building. He had a hand in his pocket and a phone to his ear. Of course i was a proud and energetic SPC at the time and Ran up behind him said "Hey Soldier you need to stop walking while on a phone and pull your hand out of your pocket"... <br><br>The soldier exused himself from the phone call momentarily and turned around. My luck... a Brigadier General. He commended me on doing the right thing. Shook my hand with a coin then went back to his phone call. Most awkward salute i have ever given... <br>
