Abstract:

All ethical decisions made by our military leaders should be based on the Army values, the NCO Creed, the Soldiers Creed, and the Warrior Ethos. However, in many cases it appears that senior leadership is being told what they want to hear and not necessarily what the ground truth may actually be. Since the GWOT is a war of attrition commanders must be informed with the latest and most up to date information in order to make timely and effective decisions that affect the battlefield. NCOs have always been and will always be the entity on the ground that offers the truth regardless of whether the information is popular or not. It is imperative that this trend always remains.
