Navy, Air Force Lag Behind in Professionalism

“A force-wide look at misconduct among senior military officers — and the efforts to prevent it — found significant differences among the services’ cultures,” the Military Times reports.  

Said Rear Adm. Margaret “Peg” Klein: “The Army and the Marine Corps have a very mature profession of arms. The ground forces, they send really junior people into leadership positions. They have company command, they have O-3s going into command, and their professional identity is learned very early on.”  

Yet the Navy and the Air Force, historically, “are very technically focused.”
