That reminds me of the First Sergeant I heard last week talking about his laundering practices. He has one uniform he wears during the week, 2 in his closet and 1 at the dry cleaner. As I was about to say something he followed up saying that he knew he was wrong for getting his uniform dry cleaned but didn't care because "I really like the creases...besides, who is going to say something to me for trying to look professional?" I couldn't hold back and asked him, "1SG, isn't it more professional to set the example and actually follow the rules and regulations instead of picking and choosing the ones we feel like following?"
I respect most of my E-9s, by the way, I just knew one that would not go to the 1SG to make a correction but he would go to the E-6 in question just to give him shit just because one time there was a meeting months earlier, the SSG asked the BN CMDR why we were not getting deployed to missions? The CSM had a hard-on for the the SSG from that point forward and hounded this SSG for stupid things just to F with him even though he was an outstanding soldier. That SSG left and went to another unit and is serving well and getting a few ARCOMs for his service helping soldiers. I am his personal friend so I know.
