Leadership. Any tour of duty depends upon one's leaders. If it is toxic, one might never recover or reenlist.

Unfortunately, dirt bag leaders exist in the ranks. They use their rank to demean, and end careers if they don't like you, instead of your leadership capabilities! These people should be stripped of their rank because they are worthless!

I agree. Alot of Dirt Bags, Dead Cabbage leaders in the ranks. Some are unhappy and miserable and spread this to others to make them get in trouble (Article 15) or not want reenlist. You just have to stay away from these folks. If you make the military a career then you need to focus on good positive people who will guide you in the right path and show you the way to prosper. Good Call SSG Michael D.

As the song goes, "You gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when to run."

_That_ is a lesson I'm still learning. I never held 'em as much as I should've and I walked away from far too much.

Granted, I served in a different era, when it was a "crime" to be out as anything under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella, so I was on my way out already (wanting to be _me_ rather than having to be very careful about keeping masks in place. So in one sense, the answer is tolerance. Not just now when we can tolerate and accept people that are different, but how much you can tolerate living a role that doesn't fit.

If you don't know your limits -- when you should hold, fold, walk, or run -- success will be much harder to grasp and much easier to lose.

Your card games are true in cases There are times you are just stuck with that had You don't even get to draw cards So fight on and never give up granted I am a old Marine We don't normally give ground maybe because a lot of the time there was no where to fold them It was said by a Army Sgt that it depends on leadership If the leadership is gone then someone will show the initiative step up and lead you to your objective
