I don't know about the rest of you, but I will not stand for it. I am a mother, and we mothers endeavor to instill in our children values, honor, and character. How dare the military academies fail to uphold our standards. We do not lend our sons and daughters to the United States Military without the expectation that an even higher standard will be taught and practiced. I demand that accountability be enforced at the highest levels. If you are in leadership, and incapable of enforcing the standards which are the stated guiding principles of each of the branches of service, you are not the man or woman for the job. Step aside and allow those who are to lead. Just because you are selected as a general office, does not mean you have the skills, character, and devotion to sacred duty to be a general officer, as so many have recently proven.
I watch those commercials on television where you use parents interacting with their sons and daughters, every insinuation, every direct message, every nuance of language indicates you will promote and permit only honorable behavior among the troops. However, recent courts martials indicate that while leadership seems to now be returning to promoting honor by enforcing accountability, there has been a period of overall failure of Army leadership.
