Tjaden refuses to salute Himmelstoss and basically tells him where to go. Tjaden is not severely reprimanded because strong experienced soldiers, like Tjaden, are scarce. The front is no longer a training ground and Tjaden is worth much more to the army well rested rather than punished. Himmelstoss's superiors reprimand him for picking on the young men.
