In regards to previous questions and discussions that I have started, I am an American Soldier. I am squared away and I don't have any problems with authority. The question I asked about my ring was because I don't understand the NCO's motive behind telling me not to wear it, but I've decided not to push the envelope and just not wear the ring. In regards to the question about an NCO or Officer hitting or pushing me and whether I have the legality to defend myself, it was a general question. I am not a threat to anyone, I apologize to anyone who felt disrespected in regards to my discussion description "breaking it down barney style" it was rude and completely uncalled for. I completely understand with the questions I have asked how you could think I'm the problem. I might be, but I'm not a threat and as I said I will not wear the ring anymore in uniform.

Excellent Soldier! If it took 65 people of all ranks, ages and generations to make this happen, I have to say this site is something very special.
This is a great attitude to have and I wish you all the Best with your career!

Thank you for stepping up, being credible and accountable. There will be many moments in your Military career that "just don't make sense" to you, press on and maintain your warrior spirit. If you find yourself faltering, look to your mentors. If you don't feel any locally can help, please trust that your RP Family will offer.

SPC Voye most of the replies to your questions were concerned leaders. maybe some of the replies don't have the best approach but they were well intended and with genuine concerns. From my standpoint of view, seems you are a Soldier in need of "outstanding leadership" and maybe you was reaching out in this forum for advice. My recommendation to you is find a good mentor, someone that you admire and look up to as a leader. I know you may have a lot of questions and want to learn more. And a mentor can help you with your concerns and questions. I believe if you have a good mentorship and/or someone that help you, I know you will bloom and be a good leader in the future. Keep your head up and always do the right. Honor with your service all the persons that you love and care and make them proud. Hope one day to see you as a Sergeant or maybe an officer. My.02 cents.
