This is my answer for my own question: Non-commissed officers are entitled to implicit obedience from the soldiers, and they should be abeyed and respected by the men and women; and when a NCO fails in obtaining this reguard and obedience from the men and women, he fails in his most essential qualification.
The confidence of the soldier in the integrity of a NCO can only be obtained by his being rigidly just and impartial to those under him, and by keeping his temper on all occassions, and discharging his duty without passion or feeling. A NCO who can not control himself will find difficulty in controlling those whom he is placed. So pretty much a NCO has to carry himself accordingly to get respect. It also go for E-4s and below.
"You gotta respect the rank" crap that some people espouse...I don't necessarily agree with that, but you damn sure better not disrespect me either on day one. as the 30 days go by, the soldiers learn more about me as a person and a leader. By living up to the Creed of the Non Commissioned Officer and the Soldiers Creed I demonstrate that I am a respectable person. By the end of the course, they respect SSG P, as well as SSG Ps Rank... and that is True respect not just kowtowing to the rocker...
Non Commissioned Officers are team players and will go out of their way to help their fellow soldiers.
Everyone in the military gives respect to everyone else in the military.
