equally known is that a butterbar doesn't know **** and leans on the the SFC's experience in most cases in a platoon.
Not sure what branch you were in but a quick way for a butterbar to get in trouble is to come into a situation thinking he's got all of the answers.
If you don't think a new GM, just hired, can't be intimidated, I'm not sure what military you were in. A new lieutenant always relies on those with more experience.
