Obeying an nco is important and what obeying someone means in my own words is to comply with or achive the “objective” regardless of it being restrictions or merely the instructions of that specific person. The reason it is so important to follow a order from a nco is beacuse they are trying to benefit your carrier to build you up into a better solider and as a lower enlisted it is my or any other lower enlisted soliders duty to do what is told or asked of them by a nco. Doing what is told is expected and is part of the job not just only in the US army but also in any other branch of military service. For someone to not follow a order can lead to big mistakes in a person military career and in the US army it is a must that you follow any orders from your higher enlisted or officers. Not following orders could lead to a lack of trust from your follow NCO’s and from your fellow soliders regardless of if they are in your squad, platoon, brigade ect.
