Op keeps referring to his ‘other friends who are great leaders that lied on their forms.’ Who is evaluating them as great leaders? BC perhaps they actually aren’t. BC they lie and dismiss integrity. At least in some situations. And if your people figure out you have/do lie, how can they trust. And if trust is gone, how are you a great leader? Additionally, the time at a SA/ROTC is when you are learning/practicing your leadership. I’m not sure I would call anyone an amazing leader until they are practiced and tested out in the real world. Verses the world of an SA or ROTC program. Perhaps you mean they are great people. I can buy that as I don’t think a mistake or wrong choice in high school make you a bad person. But referring g to them as great leaders and lying doesn’t sit right with me. In fact, when a recruiter (or in the future, a boss or chain of command) instructs you you to lie, just what DOES a good leader, who knows it’s wrong, do?? Leaving that as a rhetorical question. Isn’t there a class on ethics?
