This morning I read an article in the Stars & Stripes that was very disturbing. An NCO was found guilty of abusing a subordinate. While I believe most of our leaders are out to do the right thing and grow the future leaders of our nation I also understand, there are individuals that act inappropriately. These individuals can be divided into two categories. Those that willfully mistreat their subordinates and abuse their authority and those that mirror the actions of their previous leadership. Many times these techniques are not appropriate. Corrective training is designed to correct and educate not punish and abuse the Soldier.
