Trust and confidence are important for any team, it is more important with leaders and subordinates, but it is multiplied by thousands when it comes to tactical operations. Operators that are facing an adversary need to have no doubt in their mind, it should not even be a glitch in their mind, of whether or not to trust their leaders. If this is a case that operator needs to address the issue with their command, try to fix the issue, and if not leave the team.
