Standards and Values - Courage

I'm off on my bank holiday weekend. In an earlier post I explained that the army laid out the values and standards it expects of its' soldiers.

So what do you think they mean by Courage?

I was a strange boy, in a teenage paper I wrote down a definition for courage as "Standing up for your convictions regardless of your fear".

LMAO THANKS FOR THE WELL WISHING UNIVERSAL SOLDIER, BUT MY TIME AS A BOOTNECK HAS TAUGHT ME TO FIGHT DIRTY. I WILL TEACH YOU TO PARACHUTE WITH JUST A KLEENEX IF WE EVER MEET SOMETIME, THAT WILL IMPRESS ALL YOUR COMRADES.

D34D/The Boy - I think that's the important part.

Greavsie - although sometimes a few pints of Courage makes one very courageous.

Walter - thanks for your continued interest. Best of luck with that undercover job that we can't talk about.

Courage?

Err, answering honestly to "Does my bum look big in this?"

It was enough to make me consider a life of cowardice.

I like the Boy's definition. I keep trying to write my own but I would rather just steal his.

Have a great weekend US and Mrs Soldier.

Willingness to get hideously mutilated or killed in some war that no-one back home really cares about?

Maybe to do what you're told even when you know that it's insane?

I haven't commented yet, so can I just say that I've really enjoyed reading this so far.

Standing up to BNP extremists instead of leaving it to others would be a start.
Excuse my frankness, it is not unkindly meant.

To stand fast in spite of fear.
To do what must be done regardless of personal cost.

WHY is Bloglines not telling me when you update?

I'm not sure what "courage" means according to the army but I'm going with the boy's definition.

Have a lovely weekend...
