Amusingly, the Post has an article today on a soldier trying to make the Old Guard, which does the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington, etc. They preach the concept of "stick it", meaning if you screw up, act as if you didn't, because correcting just causes more attention. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/05/29/AR2010052903726.html?hpid=topnews "Sticking it is an important concept in the Old Guard. It doesn't mean get it right, or nail it. It means stay still when you get it wrong. It means that if you put your rifle on your right shoulder instead of on your left like every other soldier in the company, you do not suddenly correct yourself. That only makes it worse. You stick it, and carry on as if that is exactly what you were supposed to do. "
