Constitution, the Army, your unit, and other Soldiers. Loyalty is the big thing, the greatest battle asset of all.
But no man ever wins the loyalty of troops by preaching loyalty.
It is given him by them as he proves his possession of the other virtues. Marshall Men Against Fire All Soldiers and government civilians swear a sacred oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution established the legal basis for the existence of our Army.
As a logical consequence, leaders as members of the armed forces or government civilians have an obligation to be faithful to the Army and its people. Soon, the Japanese grip on the islands tightened and the Philippine defenders at Bataan were surrounded and without any support other than artillery fire from Corregidor.
Disease, exhaustion, and malnutrition ultimately accomplished what thousands of Japanese soldiers had not done for 90 days—Bataan was lost. When Bataan fell to the Japanese, more than 12, Filipino Scouts and 17, Americans became prisoners.
Other prisoners were used for bayonet practice or pushed to their deaths from cliffs. The situation at Corregidor was no better. Soldiers were weary, wounded, malnourished, and diseased.
GEN Wainwright directed the defenses with the limited resources available. Wainwright made frequent visits to the front to check on his men and to inspire them personally.
He never feared coming under direct fire from enemy soldiers. A tenacious warrior, he was used to seeing men next to him die and had often personally returned fire on the enemy. GEN Wainwright was a unique kind of frontline commander—a fighting general who earned the loyalty of his troops by sharing their hardships.
After holding the Japanese against impossible odds for a full six months, Wainwright had exhausted all possibilities—no outside help could be expected. On 6 MayGEN Wainwright notified his command of his intent to surrender and sent a message to the President of the United States to explain the painful decision.
He was proud of his country and his men and he had been forthright and loyal to both. His Soldiers had come to love, admire, and willingly obey the fighting general. As he passed among their ranks, the men struggled to their feet and saluted.
During his more than three years of captivity as the highest-ranking and oldest American prisoner of war in World War II, GEN Wainwright kept faith and loyalty with his fellow prisoners and suffered many deprivations, humiliation, abuse, and torture.
Despite his steadfast posture in captivity, GEN Wainwright feared the moment of his return to America, expecting to be considered a coward and a traitor for his surrender at Corregidor.
Americans at home had not forgotten and remained loyal to the fighting general and his courageous troops. At unit and organizational levels, loyalty is a two-way commitment between leaders and subordinates. There is a great deal of talk about loyalty from the bottom to the top.
Loyalty from the top down is even more necessary and much less prevalent. The loyalty of subordinates is a gift given when a leader deserves it.
Leaders who are loyal to their subordinates never let Soldiers be misused or abused. Subordinates who believe in their leaders will stand with them no matter how difficult the situation.
Research and historical data agree that Soldiers and units fight for each other. Loyalty bonds them together.A man is accidentally transported to A.D., where he must battle an army of the dead and retrieve the Necronomicon so he can return home.
