What Major Brigham wants you to forget is that there are limits to obedience, even in the Army. Apparently, he forgot his training, but I haven’t, and I’m sure you haven’t either. The chain of command doesn’t mean you do everything your CO tells you. Every grunt learns on the first day there are commands and commanders you must disobey.Caleb
