Subject: RE: BS: How low can you go?
I hate to break this news to some of you, but the Army doesn't want people who sit down and consider the ramifications of an order such as, "GAS!", or "GRENADE!"

Are you serious? In that context "GAS!", or "GRENADE!" is NOT an order. It is a warning. I'm sure that if a private sees a grenade and yells "Grenade!" even officers in the vicinity will duck and cover.

I think the type of order they want blind obedience of is more along the lines of "Over the top" or "Charge".
