Self discipline in the military is where soldiers do the 4 rights without being told, even in the absence of the commander. Discipline is created within a unit by instilling a sense of confidence and responsibility in each individual. To strengthen discipline, senior leaders need to give praise to their subordinates, either individually or as a whole, for tasks done well. By doing this, it will accomplish every commanders goal of having a unit that functions well and builds a bond which binds together the team. Everything in life requires some sort of discipline.

If this nationwide contagion continues to develop, the result will be a country unable to sustain, govern, or defend itself. The solution is evident: military service.

The Weak Link
Well dressed, well armed, and well positioned, European armies in the eighteenth century were more powerful and prepared to defeat the opponent. It wasn’t until the Americans in the late century; backed by the French, did Britain even see a major challenge outside of Europe. Even though they had the ability to fight across seas, they were not quite as effective with smaller armies on foreign soil, in the Americas. When this weakness was exploited it became the catalyst to turn the favor away from mighty Europe.
