Apparently, strict disciplinarians don't care about people. 
So the San Diego Union Tribune seems to believe.

Why on earth would a reporter use the "despite" construction? What kind of veteran commander of three wars would NOT be a strict disciplinarian? How can you care about people in a combat zone and not be a strict disciplinarian?

The gulf between our military and media cultures yawns ever wider.
