One of my first military memories is an instructor ripping an “Irish pennant” (piece of string) off of my uniform shoulder and asking me why I had such poor attention to detail. It took me many years to realize that the guy wasn’t out of his skull. While the Irish pennant on my uniform wasn’t, by itself, going to hurt anybody or get in the way of the mission, it still revealed my lack of attention to detail.
