military bearing


War Face

a: Military bearing ~
b: a game-face

What: "Military bearing is like a game-face; it keeps the "human" things about a soldier out of sight. Emotions, reactions, opinions all stay hidden behind a servicemember's military bearing. If one of those things slips out, it's noticed - if it happens often enough it will get commented on by command, be put into the soldier's evaluation, and possibly earn a discharge."
