Abstract:

A standard is a standard, and all standards must be enforced. The Army develops regulations to ensure that certain standards are met and maintained. Army regulations are law and will be followed by everyone. If Soldiers and leaders follow the established standards, they will not find themselves in an ethical dilemma nearly as often as they do if they fail to follow them. As Noncommissioned Officers NCO it is our responsibility to enforce standards established by the regulation, not create new ones. Neither you, nor I have the right to overlook the established standards as outlined by Army regulations. Similarly, we do not have the authority to arbitrarily create new standards for the purpose of making ourselves look good.
