Yes change is good sometimes to correct a major error or problem, but the continuous nitpicking every little individual wish of some small percentage group of PC complaint has diminished what the military's ultimate mission is and was, defend the country and our allies, but we have become to concerned about who's feelings we have hurt because we made them do corrective training of physical activity or pulling barracks guard to correct an infraction on their part. While it has always been ok to be friendly with your subordinates, it doesn't make for conducive or productive enforcement if you are friends with them or your seniors, it creates the environment where issues will arise and feelings will be hurt when you are made to do something that is right and not what you want, the standards, until we get away from that mentality it is only going to continue and progressively get worse before it gets better and stronger for everyone serving.
