With regards to the "empty gesture protesting" that is occurring around the country with Clinton supporters. How would military bearing be useful in these situations or before they arise?

Military bearing is remembering that respect goes up and comes down and being professional isn't enough. Showing honor and respect to the rank is equally important as showing honor and respect to the person

SSG Michael Hartsfield Well said. Many interactions in our lives go smoother when respect is included in the interaction!

Military bearing involves accepting situations that we don't like, but have to deal with them anyway. I understand the feelings of Clinton supporters, but those involved in violence and destruction are truly hurting their own cause. They need to suck it up and make the best of a bad situation. The world will not end.

take a cue from the Brits and have a "stiff upper lip". They've won and few and lost a few over the years and had a country 5x longer than we have. nobody likes a sore loser of a bad winner. notice the scoreboard, salute the CiC and move out.
