Do you ever wish you could get in on those top secret war planning meetings? Do your fingers start to itch when you see those maps laid out on the table with colored flags distributed throughout to represent each regiment? Do you ever wonder what those top military officials are talking about at the long table in some secret room of the Pentagon? You don’t have to go through boot camp to become a high ranking officer when you slip on this dapper wartime costume.
What happens when we see a person in uniform? Most people feel an impulse to respect that person, whether or not they have a love of authority and military. While it might not seem fair that you get to take a short cut to gain that kind of respect, you have to give yourself more credit. You make a great leader, you’re good in a crisis. Think about that time you took care of that trapped mouse at your mom’s house. Sure, you may have yelped when you thought it’s limp body moved but even a first class petty officer is going to shudder when it comes to mice. What about the time you and your friends went camping and someone sat on the bread that was a main part of dinner? Who diffused that tense situation? Sure, it may have been you that sat on the loaf but it takes a leader to get everyone to think squished bread makes a better wiener bun.
Whether you’re part of a reenactment, in a super exciting play, or you’re taking Halloween to the next level this year, we’re sure you’re ready to take on your new position of leadership. Just make sure your shoes are shined. After all, in the military, the devil is in the details.
