Some military traditions are worth preserving; others are obsolete
from Task & Purpose
Learning to distinguish between traditions with value and those without it will help preserve the service from overzealous civilians. The military is a strange institution. It must be on the cutting edge of innovation and change in order to win the nation's wars. If it falls behind, even for a moment, the costs can be immense. In some cases, it even leads social change when it serves military goals — the military was at the forefront of civil rights when it integrated blacks in 1948.
