Although circumstances will arise that may switch it.

For instance, I would not sacrifice myself for duty to my employer, mainly because of family. If the country became a socialist regime, and started concentration camps, country falls waaay down on the list.

I'm not sure what you're getting at, but "self" ain't going to be at the bottom of my list no matter what. "Family" is at the top, because I love my child more than anything.

In my experience, the rest of those are continually shifting priorities for everyone I've ever met. They change their priorities as it suits the situation.

I really can't put "God" on a list like this. Being a fictional character, it wouldn't make sense.

FWIW, I don't rate country very high, because a very large minority of the population no longer shares my values.

Families sacrifice when people serve- and when they die.

God will never conflict with my moral integrity (honor), so he gets top billing. Everything else must be secondary to moral integrity because otherwise that would conflict with obligation #1 from which #2 is derived. Family comes before country because if you can not take care of your family, you sure as hell can not help your country. I left off duty because that really does not belong in this list since you have a duty to all of the above. The list is the order in which you must fulfill your duties.

I just threw those up there as they came to mind. I have heard many versions of this and wondered what folks felt was then right order. My order would be

God
Family
Country / duty ( same?)
Honor

Families sacrifice when people serve- and when they die.

There are more ways to help your country than to serve in the military.

Correct- I am accutely aware of your point. Families sacrifice often when we do the "right thing". There is no "correct" order as it has been noted these things are intertwined and effect each other.

You know, I am not a huge Colt fan.

Having said that, when I see a Colt thread pop up, my goal in life is not to post a reply, "Colt Sucks Ass!".

I simply read it, and move on, thinking better than to offer my wisdom to people that couldn't care less.

But, whatever works, I guess.

Seems easy enough. Like in my post above, I simply said "I'm not a religious man" and left God out. No harm done.

Especially around here (where I live), it seems to really offend people when I mention that I'm not religious. For that, I apologize. I never mean to insult or offend.

This except God and I are straight.

I cannot give to anyone else what I do not have for myself. If I'm not taking care of myself and I try to take care of you I become tired, sick and irritable. That and if you're an adult you should be taking care of your self, too.

Duty (This covers duty to family, country and self.)
Honor (This ensures that you know and do your duty and you don't sell it out. Selling it out pulls the rug out from under everything else.)
Country (By performing your duty honorably, this serves the country and therefore your family and yourself by making it better and/or safer.)
