      Sargesbrat --Randy > Surprise! You have found THE place to share your experiences in GB. We have one member that decided to stay over there that we have not heard from in a while. Maybe you can drag him out from under his heather by sharing your stories with us.

      gregkerr Randy, my Dad was an Army Engineer assigned to SCARWAF during the years 1954-1957. His unit was building or lengthening runways for strategic bombers as the Air Force didn't have it's own engineers. Not sure what bases were involved as we lived on the eco...  more

      retcolusa Greg,
      The simple answer is, yes, you must do anything that you are ordered to do unless the order is illegal or violates regulations/policies.

    • gregkerr
      gregkerr Well that's sort of my question Terry, is combating disease legal?..and if so would it be legal to send personnel from other agencies? It just seems like where does one draw the line and who is the arbitrator who decides? I understand Ebola is considered ...  more

      retcolusa Here's the thing. No 4 Star general is ever going to make 5 stars short of total war. What the hell do they have to lose? That's why the motto of West Point is, "Duty, Honor, Country", not "I will blindly obey an idiot".
