PFC Smith

Part 1: PFC Smith describes a challenge he faced while serving as the Trainee Platoon Leader during Basic. PFC Smith's Platoon was given a narrow window of time in the evening for everyone to call home. He worked out the math and everyone had time for a 3- minute call. Then he found out some members of the Platoon had already called home by sneaking down to the phones earlier in the day. The responsibility fell on PFC Smith to sort this out.

Part 2: PFC Smith describes how he made his decision and how the Platoon reacted to it. He had further challenges because some of the Soldiers that went to the phones earlier never actually used them, and wanted their turn. PFC Smith was able to resolve the issues and execute his plan. He talks about Loyalty to his friends and Duty as the Platoon Leader.
