I have been heard stating that "the most basic lesson a Soldier needs to learn is: Keep your mouth shut and do what the ((BEEEP)) you're told."

I don't say this in order to lean into autocratic leadership. I say it because I believe it is the catalyst for self discipline and conformity to the military environment.

Q: What are your thought?

Q: Do you have a different "basic rule?"

Any and all thoughts welcome.

Please and Thank You.

I agree, being aware of your situation often means keeping your mouth shut, listening closely and acting on what your being told... however sometimes it also means communicating information effectively.
