Most of my family was and I grew up as an Air Force brat. I understand chain of command well enough to know that not all duties one carries out must be announced up the chain. Not all orders given are referred upwards for approval. Once you reach certain levels in the chain, you are expected to perform the duties within your purview without running your decisions 'up the chain'.It does answer the question. Were you in the military?
That's why your answer is not satisfactory.
