Respect within the Military basically means treat others as you would want to be treated. It is one of the basic Army Values. It is by far one of the most important values that we have. It is the one that keeps everyone acting polite and curiosities towards everyone. This is one of the NCO’s basic responsibilities to make sure that everyone has respect. This is something that everyone has to make sure that they are teaching everyone at an early time once they arrive into the unit. Even when a person first enters the Army they are taught the meaning of respect within the Military.
Respect is found in the same way as disrespect but for the sign of Respect is that the person shows you their upmost attention to every detail that is put out to the person. The verbal part of this is to only say the correct things to the person. For example when a Senior NCO talks to a lower enlisted. The lower enlist should always say the senior NCO’s rank after they told them something. For instance, a MSG asks a question to a group of PFC’s and SPC’s, one person should address the MSG with the correct greeting. They should start by saying his or her rank and then the response that is needed.
Respect is also known to be a two way street, but with this you will have to start off by showing the proper level of respect to the person that you are working with of working for. They always say that respect is a two way street. Most of the time, it always starts with the lower enlisted showing to the higher or more senior enlisted and even commissioned officers. This is for the fact that they have been in the Military for some time and they have worked to get to that point. Also the military almost runs like a family. With the way the ranking system is laid out, the higher rank you are the more the army or people around you treat as if you were a head of a house hold. Respect is a positive feeling of admiration or deference for a person or other entity, and also specific actions and…

To start I think you need to respect yourself, its important because that is where you would find your basis for respect. It would be impossible to respect someone if your can’t even respect your own self, A way to respect yourself would be to think about all your accomplishments instead of always thinking about the things you have done to fail. Some people dwell on the fact that they always mess up, when instead they should think about all the positive things they have done as an individual. When we were young we were told to respect our elders and our parents but as we grow up I think we begin to lose that respect for them. Then we went to boot camp and we were then shown to respect everyone that is a higher rank to and your peers. Throughout boot camp we were shown the rank structure and how it is important to the Marine Corps and who we are as marines. When we were told to do something we did it, no and ifs or buts because we had so much respect for the drill instructors and also so much fear. When we were being talked to we showed our out most respect, we listened and we did that without blocking them out, or ignoring them witch was almost impossible anyways. When people give you advice think about what they are saying its usually for a good reason, for the most part if someone is trying to give you advice it probably because they learned from something similar that had happened to them in the past and there giving you that advice so you don’t end up in the same boat as they did. Don’t interrupt people until there done or they let you get in the conversation, just wait till you get your chance and then you can ask your question or put your two sense in. other ways to show respect is in your work environment. By doing this you are building tighter bonds with your peers and with tighter bonds you’re more likely to improve work flow. Ways to do this is to give the proper greetings of the days and to say there rank whenever you are told to do something or being…
