    Jun 5, 2014

    While it is disheartening to hear stories of junior enlisted Soldiers making poor decisions and paying for them with their lives, it is demoralizing to hear stories of Army leaders who do the same.

What do leaders convey to their Soldiers when they act irresponsibly? Perhaps some of the young Soldiers' poor decisions were a result of messages received from their leaders' actions.
