Would that be what the private sector calls "brown nosing"?


Which one are you asking about?

Most military air crews become beyond such things as mutual respect is necessary to success.

I could rewrite that as experienced NCOs were treated very well by young subbies needing to learn as well as experienced pilots who trusted us to keep them out of trouble and get the 'kill' as we were the only one who could see the Sonar while the Radar scope was shared with the TacNav. Amazing how quickly a junior TacNav learns the left and right in an aircraft with a sideways facing scope when he gets elbowed in the ribs for getting it wrong without having to embarrass him too badly with the forward facing pilots. }};-D

I should add that promotions in our trade above Sgt. (OR6 or Tech Sgt in USAF) were rare except for those willing to accept office jobs that involved a serious cut in pay. They didn't need a whole lot of very senior NCOs that couldn't go to sea on a detachment.

Well I took a break while typing this, things are finally starting to move in a big way on non-COVID medical stuff.
