My Experience mirrors yours Lynata with one exception: Decorations and awards ceremonies. If the Squad is going to be awarded for Gallantry in the field or some such you can guarantee some politically motivated high ranking hack will show up to take credit for "Their men". (If I sound cynical it's because I too am a former enlisted vet.)

Good addition! That probably works the same everywhere - my unit rarely deployed anywhere, so I hadn't had much chance at witnessing something like this, but I should have remembered this from all the movies I've been watching.  :D

 

Sidenote: Hollywood (etc) may not be the most accurate representation of life in the military (depending on the movie), but I'd say it's still a useful inspiration just because it's what most people are familiar with, and thus may be expecting from a roleplaying game that uses a similar theme. :)


current 40k RPG character: Aura Vashaan, Astromancer Witch-Priestess
