Two things every soldier needs to know:

Mission: What is the goal? Objective? What are we trying to accomplish?
Green Beret Motto: De Opresso Liber

- To liberate the oppressed
Mission: The transformation of people in order to transform culture
Rules of Engagement - The orders issued by a competent military authority that describe in detail when, where, how, and against whom military force may be used, and they have implications for what actions soldiers may take on their own authority and what directives may be issued by a commanding officer.
