  1. Good episode! Hard to believe we have active duty Senior NCOs who think reporting an Airman’s performance to mom and dad is showing good leadership. Not in my shop! What a cop-out!

  2. I have to say this extremism stuff is bad enough, but calling a soldier’s parents for help with disciplie? It’s no wonder the military is having an identity crisis with limp-wristed leaders like these!
