As far as I'm concerned, every job in the Army is just as important as the next. If the cooks can make a hearty meal instead of flavorless boiled chicken, it makes a big difference in morale. If there are thorough soldiers working the radios and monitoring the cameras, it makes for a more efficient war. When mechanics are skilled with maintenance, everyone can do their job properly.

FORT WORTH, Texas - A Texas man with no military experience managed to trick the Army into letting him enter a reserve unit as a noncommissioned officer earlier this year, putting an untrained soldier in a leadership position in a time of war, an Associated Press investigation has found.
The revelation comes just months after the Army drew criticism for failing to flag the suspicious activities of the Army psychiatrist now charged with killing 13 and wounding dozens of others at Fort Hood.
