Going up in grade comes with a price.
I got tired of my state telling me I was a
role model... refs look up to me;;; so I should *behave* and
do things that way... or this but not that way! gimme a break :-)
Well, I could not satisfy their standards...
I did not want to change my style.
I was very happy with the way I am. And I am not a role
model. Why should you look up to a role model. You
should be all you can be. You do not join the Army to be a
Patton, a Westmorland, etc... you join the Army to be the
best you can be... why not much better than Patton, DeGaule
or anygeneral else.
