They might tell you all that Glory And Honour bullshit in school, but here is how it works the the Gloried Halls Of Democracy. The Good Guys, that's us, try to get funding from the Bad Guys, that's them. This involves power plays, friends in high places, political campaigns (when the military leadership should be above politics), etc. Not good. Not much in the way of Glory And Honour. Lots of the same old politicking that goes on every day on the Hill, and we're all sick of it. Huzzah for the gentlemen of the Log, because I'd rather have individuals with Functioning Cerebrums(tm) than mindless, emotionless *MONSTERS* (e.g. pigs, cops, glorps, the Pinks, norms, etc.) protecting me any day of the week and twice on, uh, Sundays.
Uncommon courage and discipline requires individuals capable of thinking through a situation and Doing The Right Thing. Creativity and discipline under fire are NOT mutually exclusive, and courage does NOT mean that you don't fear anything.
