That is true SMSgt Dr. G. A. Thomas. When I started dating my wife she would ask how my day was and I would probably explain too detailed and she lost interest since she didn't have a clue what I was talking about. I learned really quick to just keep it short and sweet without all the details.

TSgt Steve Waide - Don't fell bad for years whe my wife asked how the day went I was pretty much limited to saying" OK" or 'not so good', any more information would have required committing a crime,

It is a shift in culture for the military member and the civilian. Most service members have been indoctrinated to do the right thing, show up on time, and be 10 minutes early. Some (being kind here) don't understand the concept. That is why the SM is highly sought after.

there are civilian work environments where a supervisor enforcing those standars finds himself loosing employees and learns that superiors are easier to replace than highly skilled labor, For example nobody really give a damn if a skilled programmer has trouble making tit to work on tin as long as he is good at coding,

People who get to work on time are relatively easy to find, Some do not understand the concept becasue it has no bearing in their reality and there is no reason it w should attitudes should match the requirements of the mission/job. I saw elephome switch contol supervior get on his high horse about professional appearance and getting to work and leaving work at the proper time. He was replacing a guy, a vet > who careds that the work require was done on time and properly, The new guy soon found himself unemployed after 3 of his 5 techs simply found employment elsewhere And the job did not get doen

Some mitary skills and attributes are a great help to employed, but especial in skilled jobs the tight-assed attitude that often goes with them does more harm than good. The gut in worn jeans heavy metal t-shirt ans who might have missed his last shave and shower might just be the most important guy in getting the job done.

Hire Veterans, over time they will learn civilian habits. Civilians won't learn veteran habits over time
