            Encourage your soldiers to speak up and report any violations of General Order 1A, host country laws or U.S. law that they witness.

General Order 1A, Section 5 ["UNIT COMMANDER RESPONSIBILITY"] of General Order 1A : "Commanders, Security Assistance Office Chiefs, and military and civilian supervisors are charged with ensuring that ALL PERSONNEL are briefed on the prohibitions and requirements of this GENERAL ORDER. Commanders and supervisors are expected to exercise discretion and good judgment in enforcing this General Order. Component Commanders may further restrict their forces as they deem necessary."

            Encouraging or tolerating a "code of silence" does not bolster unit cohesion.  

Try responding to another scenario in Question 6.
