Abstract:

Fleecing of Our Soldiers address the ethical issue that Soldiers and Noncommissioned Officers face when dealing with private organization membership drives. It identifies the established policies and procedures that outline how to ethically conduct private organization membership drives. Then it transitions to six examples of coercive and unethical procedures that leaders use while conducting private organization membership drives. Fleecing of Our Soldiers subsequently suggests two possible corrective measures the addition of ethics training covering private organizations into unit and NCOES training requirements, combined with a command climate that encourages leaders to choose the hard right over the easy wrong.
