I was speaking to a very good mate of mine some while ago. He was telling me that, in his opinion, there has been a shift change in relation to rank and it's 'kudos' if you will. I recall many years ago that (i'm talking about a working unit here) a full screw meant quite something. And making that what seemed to be, massive step towards that Sgts' mess was a big, big thing. To be a SNCO was indeed a massive achievment, and something that you would be rightly proud of. Now, i have done a few years, is it the general consensus that people, more so than now, are taking it for granted, thus devalueing this step up? Or is it the (what i think) issue of people not giving a flying fukk, about it all?
