Loyalty and the Code of Honor

The first point in the Code of Honor by L. Ron Hubbard is:

"Never desert a comrade in need, in danger or in trouble."

Not always easy to do, especially under pressure, or when the friend is in serious trouble and association with him/her could "reflect" on you -- but this is a very black and white point, and it doesn't say "when you can" it says "Never."

I think it is a point of integrity and courage to be able to adhere to this point of the code.

And it is a measure of true friendship as well.
