Ultimately, military bearing is a key essential in a soldier’s life, not only because this is what the army wants you to act but also because these is the way to tell other soldiers who you are and where you stand in the code and law of the United States Army. Military discipline is one of the biggest pride of the United States Army soldiers. It is a learned skill that civilians differ from soldiers. This ability, just like little kids in pre-school, is taught in basic training as civilians are transformed into soldiers. As a soldiers progresses through his military career, his military discipline is thought to be solidly carved and polished into his being, not only because he is a soldier but because this is who he is.

Every single order is important and relevant even if one doesn’t fully understand it at the time the order is given. One example could be in a combat situation.
