Being a member of JROTC I have to uphold some of these Army Values. There is seven different Army Values Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage. Out of these seven army values that we all should carry, I chose 3 to talk about today. The first Army value I’m going to talk about is Integrity, which is a good value I show. Integrity is being honest and having strong principles.
Loyalty, is the gift to my generation, in the Army, you are trusted, and you should trust others that you have respect for, and those in you don’t have respect for. You are respected by those who aren’t in the Army, as well as those who were in the Army, along with those who are in the Army with respect comes along belief, in that you will make this country better, also safer. Loyalty is also a responsibility. The responsibility is being where people need you to be, such as having your partner’s back, or having your team’s back, or the responsibility of having trust in your partner or team, showing them that you trust them. You have to be venerating towards your commanders, and elder.
Deviance in the Military Deviance is a part of every cultural group in society, even in the cultural group that demands for its members to conform to its rules. The United States military is known for its demand for discipline, honor, responsibility, and camaraderie. These four principles are considered norms in all branches of service. However, each branch of service has its own mission making each branch slightly different than each other. Within each branch, there are multiple units and each unit has its own norms.
Commitment, dedication, and motivation are the three most important values when joining the military. Background checks and months of training are required to ensure that the best is selected to stand strong as one for the best interest of all. Regardless of the requisites, hundreds of individuals devote their time to become part of the US military, unfortunately it is not meant for everyone. Even though the system tries to ensure that only the strong get chosen, it has been proven to be flawed. For example, ex-military personal, like Robert (Bowe) Bergdahl, have left base camps or leaked information to express their feelings towards the military.
Paragraph 1 Leaner Theme In this section, I will address the Learner Theme and how it reflects my learning abilities. First, this report identifies and describes my characteristics as a learner. Such as the capacity to be a perfectionist, enhancer, corrector, mentor, and educator. In addition, it illustrates overcoming my challenges and obstacles.
Ethics and integrity are essential components of character for any positive, influential leader.. Both ethics and integrity are skill sets that can be honed over time; however, it is in best practice to have them aligned with personal values which tend to be invariant. Remember the Titans, demonstrates how values can evolve. The Titans bring together a hostile torn community during the mandatory integration processes in Virginia through leaders maintaining their ethics. Not only does the movie depict values along with ethics and integrity, but it also illustrates the core competencies of this pillar.
Outcome I’m not sure if the lessons or results of this mission are publicized anywhere as I cannot find a reference to them online however, I know that all those who took part in all of the missions which contributed in the successful movement from FB Nawa and FOB Warrior will always refer to that experience when training younger soldiers while also adapting to new enemy TTPs (Techniques Tactics and Procedures), and updated technology. We relied heavily on violence of action and constant rehearsals whenever we were engaged in anything from, striking an IED to React to Contact and it indeed proved effective for us. I know I learned a lot about myself over the course of those 12 months and though I can’t fully recreate those
Over fourteen years ago, the everyday lives of the American people were forever changed. Fear, confusion, and displacement rushed our minds as the attack on 9/11 took place. This marked the beginning of the war we know today as Operation Enduring Freedom. Throughout the last decade and a half, the Army’s professional character has remained intact. Military expertise, honorable service, esprit de corps and stewardship hold us together during these times of despair, but trust within our nation’s security overtook the thoughts of the American people as they watch the second plane hit the north Twin Tower in New York City.
John F. Kennedy once said “ Do not ask what America can do for you, ask what you can do for America,” Even the president can’t work alone on most tasks. This is why he has a special team to help him. It’s important to work in a team because it can help with popularity and show effort in teamwork. It’s important to be popular in a group because it can help you achieve goals with friends. For example, Donald Trump became president because a lot of people know him from past events.
Some may ask, what is “courage”? Courage is, the ability to do what others cannot. Courage is doing the impossible when nobody thought it could be done. Courage is not something that is passed on through family genes. Courage is, bravery, heroism, valor, grit, boldness, etc.
