What people don't seem to realize is that you don't have to like someone to respect them. I always respect my fellow soldiers. Do I like all of them? No. But I will always treat them with respect

Respect goes a long way!!

YES, that's the name of the game. I've served alongside some real pieces of work, let me tell you. But I have always felt a deep and abiding respect for everyone in the service, no matter which branch. It's still an honorable occupation

I tell my kids this all the time. Doesn't matter if someone is a jerk or you think they don't like you, it will never get you anywhere to treat people with disrespect. Not only the people "above you" in the pecking order, but everyone. Used to be called common courtesy.

Yeah, it really has very little to do with how you feel about someone as a person. You learn this really quick when you have to rely upon so many unknowns in your life: where are you going to be stationed, what will your day-to-day life entail, how long until you can go home? All of those things are up in the air. So you learn to rely upon the fact that your fellow service members all have to follow the same rules. You treat someone according to their rank, not according to their personality or yours. Some people are impossible to get along with, BUT, it is very hard to find someone undeserving of respect.
