Colonel, what of the justification that letters in the jacket could have an existential - god I'm sick of that word, sorry - deadly "chilling" effect in the field?

Chill trumps accountability, the way national security/disclosure refusals sometimes trumps a prosecution? No letter for an active duty officer, ever, the new bar?

'Tarnish on the blade" certainly contextualizes first-glance bureaucratic shamelessness, which you've railed at many a time, in a for me. Never mind the actual opportunity costs of a chill-free zone.
