    Is the stereotype from the movies true... a new officer, head of a platoon, straight out of west point or officer training academy, with no actual experience, that is not yet as fit for command as the Seargents under him? Can seriously fuck things up if they do too much, etc?

    The Dickhead Lieutenant... is it for real?

    Not all of us are assholes, its just a few who give us a bad name.

    Many of my friends are enlisted so I've been hearing for 4 years what NOT to do.

    Most of us realize that the enlisted run things. We've been taught to grab onto the most senior NCO and say "teach me"

    It can be true often enough. Unfortunately, there are some of those asshat Lt's that never actually learn their lesson..... *sigh*

    Best plt leader I had was an 11b before he went gold. He was all jacked up from the Gulf War, metal plate in his head and all the teeth on one side missing, some big scars... anyway, he was one crusty old 1lt. Most of the ones I had were smart enough to listen, plus i think the 1sg whipped them when the got to the unit. I have had a few commanders that might have fallen victim to fratricide had they taken us to combat...
