Capitalization in dialogue


Do you capitalize titles when they're used in dialogue? For example, "When giving an order, Commander, you're expected to comply."


The same question regarding groups. For example, spoken over the radio, "Did you know, Command, that he was on leave?" 


Also, when referencing a person by their title. For example, "I saw the Captain and he agrees." 


Is the capitalization of Commander, Command and Captain correct?  Thank you.
