Since a few, soon to be serving, individuals have brought up the "which unit is better" subject I decided to make a statement that I know is as true for the British Army as it is for the US Army. Every single regiment has a history steeped in courage and sacrifice... their crest and patches have all been stained red with the blood of men who gave thier all to accomplish the nation's will. When you don an insignia you are duty bound to know it's past and uphold tradition. Bad mouthing a lousy leader or stupid decision is fine but don't you dare denigrate your unit as a whole because to do so is to spit on every man who came before you. If you do feel that the outfit your in isn't up to snuff then start making changes to improve it rather than whine. Even if you are just a lowly private, setting an example will have an effect on both your peers and immediate leadership... you will be amazed at how contagious motivation and professionalism are. Okay... lecture over.
