Growing up as an Air Force Brat, I learned a few things about life in the military. One thing I learned was the importance of the chain of command. If a mission is to be successful, the troops must obey the chain of command. It is essential for efficient operations. In the chain of command, of course, rank dictates who is in charge. Subordinates follow the orders of their commanders, and they are taught to be obedient. In combat, a break in the chain of command threatens the welfare and success of the entire unit, and is considered treason, which in certain instances is punishable by death.
