The two big lessons I took from my 20 years in the Air Force are 1) The vast majority of the military live and die by what is published in a Standard or Regulation with no thought to seeking or allowing an exception to the standard based on logic or common sense. 2) Even the best officers are forced to comply with "Political Correctness" in thought and deed or they will fail to be promoted. They justify the evils of political correctness in their minds by using the logic fallacy that if they don't comply, they won't be around to help out during the next war. This is a fallacy because they won't be making decisions in the next war...they will be cannon fodder for the decisions of those idiots who were promoted not for skills and intelligence but for "Right Think".
