That is fine and dandy, but in 45 years living I have never seen any place selling Lincoln Wax.

WHICH are the stores that sell it?!!
Up until the time where suede became the boot of choice for the military, I always bought it at AAFES clothing stores.  Last time I saw it was several years ago, and I bought out the 5 cans they had in stock, kept a couple for myself and gave the other three to faithful Lincoln users who were unhappy that they couldn't restock.  Used the last of the last can last winter.

After several searches in stores, the only way I could get it through Walmart was to special order it.  I opted to instead order a three pack on Amazon for about $20.  I also saw Amazon selling a three pound can of Lincoln, but the price escapes me.


In the interim, I found an off-brand at Dollar General that works just about as good as Lincoln, but head and shoulders above Kiwi.

Lincoln wax, applied in a light coat using a brush or dauber.
Allow to dry (hint, first boot dries while applying polish to second boot)
Buff with a soft brush (second boot dries while buffing the first)
Takes all of about 20 minutes once every few months.
Use the time gained by not spitshining boots to study your next achievement.
YESSSSSS....

That's all I have ever done with my boots. My current ones are 30 years olde and the uppers are still in good shape.  The ses are about shot, though. Time to start wearing the new pair.

Okay.....a chance for a little leadership lesson.


Authority (the ability to give orders) comes from three sources.

Line.
Staff.
Function.

Line Authority is the chain of command.   C/AB X belongs to an Element Leader, who belongs to a flight sergeant, who belongs to a flight commander, etc et al.

Staff Authority is the based upon grade and rank.   All Generals can order around all cols and all cols can order around Lt Cols and so forth.

Functional Authority is based upon your job.   The Safety Officer can order you to do something when it is related to safety.

In a perfect world these forms of authority never come into conflict.   But we don't live in a perfect world.

Basically  Line authority trumps staff authority.   For example your C/SSgt Element Leader tells you to do something and some random C/MSgt (not in your chain of command) tells you to do something different....you do what your Element Leader told you to do.
Likewise functional authority generally trumps staff authority.
Staff authority only comes into play when and if it does not come into conflict with the chain of command and functional authority.

So.....at what rank can you give orders?    The answer is C/AB can give orders to those under him in the chain of command (line authority) to those he out ranks by Time In Grade/Time In Service (Staff Authority) and if appointed to a particular function to anyone when it is related to accomplishing his appointed function. 

So......a C/A1C is appointed to take over for the C/MSgt (the Flight Sgt let's say) so you are now the Flight Sgt.....and you are top dog in the chain of command....even if there are C/SSgt and C/TSgt under you.

+1

Im stealing this too.. Well put and thank you for taking the time to expalin it.

First work on gaining respect of your peers. Worry about giving/issuing command and directives later.

The definition of Leadership as I learned it as a Cadet:

The art of influencing and directing people in a way the wins their kindness, respect and loyal cooperation in achieving a common objective.

I've never seen Lincoln Wax at Walmart but that may be a regional thing.  Only place around here that carries it is a store that sells duty, motorcycle, and work boots.
