Captain Faeldon emphasizes the need not to be career-oriented:
"...when you think of your career as your number one consideration...everything you do is in preparation for a next promotion, for a higher achievement, and that compromises public service..."He says that this is the problem with other soldiers i.e. their being too career oriented.
Again, he emphasizes that he will never run for any electoral positon and will never accept any appointive position.
Captain Faeldon says that the most difficult thing he has done is to set his mind to the the worst case scenario...
"Any proponent of ideas [that they think] could eventually survive, and remove them [from their comfort zone]...they will not allow that to happen"...and says that if he dies fighting and holding on to his beliefs, then he'll be satisfied.
