Fit to Fight, Fit to LEAD An Armed Force Officer is a special breed Our greatest ASSET is our INTEGRITY We take our every RESPONSIBILITY seriously By our EXAMPLE we LEAD” This creed given to the Young Officer Course of 2014 has all the answers to becoming a leader who truly leads by example “Fit to Fight Fit to Lead” Soldiers and war go hand in hand therefor it would be expected for soldiers to go into training so that when the time comes for the war he/she is competent and physically capable of overcoming the enemy. As the officer in charge of these men who will send them into battle, you would want to be certain that if you send your men into fight that they won’t desert the country or the mission given and that they can be successful in achieving the goal. In Essence you want to have you charges in such frame of mind that they willingly
General Douglas MacArthur was one of the bravest and most commanding general the United States has ever had. Douglas MacArthur was a military general who led troops in WWII and Korea. His Thayer Award Acceptance Address given at West Point Military School went through ethos, logos and militaristic diction to commemorate and entrust the new West Point Cadets who would one day lead our country. To change the speech to a different audience, one would have to use more pathos and common diction to make the speech have a different feel and audience, but maintain the same message. MacArthur was a very brave and commanding general.
Their early work environments were large, bureaucratic organizations with clearly delineated hierarchies. Rules, roles, policies, and procedures were plainly outlined. This standardization and structure contributed to the ability of organizations to grow, develop, and succeed. Achievement in this hierarchical structure was dependent upon employees who obeyed the rules and practiced within established parameters. Over time, Veterans learned that they were rewarded if they obeyed the rules and worked hard.
My father’s time in the military shaped who I was by his instilling in me responsibility, love for people, and the core values of the United States Air Force. One thing I’ve always noticed about my dad is that he is never late for work and even if he isn’t feeling well he always shows up. He takes care of the things he has too and never procrastinates. My father has taught me that the sooner you get something done the longer you have to make sure it’s right. My dad was the Assistant Chief of Operations and was in charge of emergencies and ensuring the safety of emergency responders and civilians.
Duty means being able to fulfill tasks as part of the team. Their work is building one task onto another. By the soldiers wearing the United States Army uniform shows their loyalty. The soldiers code for respect is, "Treat others with dignity and respect while expecting others to do the same." To the Army respect is trusting that all people have done their jobs and completed their duty.
A structured training and integration program for contingency area employees and managers is also required in order to improve contingency support activities. This warrants a thorough analysis as managers are responsible for the implementation of organizational policies, vision, and goals and have a significant impact on the climate and culture of the organization. The Fort Campbell AAFES is happy to employ military spouses from its local community. Fort Campbell AAFES sets itself apart from other AAFES as they set the example with the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP). Spouses are familiar with AAFES and with other military families in a unique way.
The experience of warfare generates a beneficial impact on the proficiency with which Soldiers apply their training and expertise. The past 14 years of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars have produced skilled, versatile, and capable professionals in today’s Army. The American public views the military as a cherished profession that is trusted and relied upon to guarantee America’s security and freedom. Typically, professional organizations possess certain characteristics found within their employees and culture that are inherent to make effective institutions. Within the military organization, trust is the most important characteristic that must exist throughout internal military relationships and “civil-military relations.”1 The Army must continually and clearly distinguish what makes the Army a profession and how we see our professional Soldiers while maintaining the trust relationship.
I think honoring veterans is so important because they have done so much for us. They had to put themselves in danger everyday, and they still kept us safe. They protected our country no matter what it took even if it meant they might never see there family again. So veterans should be remembered with respect and honored
The American flag is revered in the armed forces. Soldiers going into harm’s way that have worn, and continue to wear, the American flag on their uniforms. This shows that the soldiers have respect and they are proud to be an American citizen. Being in the service and fighting for what one believes in is amazing. They sacrifice their lives everyday for us, in order to protect and keep our nation safe.
In my Army, the Royal Netherlands Army part of the Netherlands Armed Forces must always be prepared to operate in a multinational framework. The Royal Netherlands Army will participate in multinational operations more and more. Therefore, international experience is an essential skill to possess. A year United States Army Sergeants Major Academy (USASMA) is a personal, unique opportunity and personal development to gain experience in an inspiring international environment. Learning the US Army philosophy and concepts of Mission Command is of great value to working in a multinational staff at various levels for instance of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
The United States Army is a profession that is built on trust. All military personnel, both Civilian and Soldiers, are tasked upholding the military professionalism of the Army. Professions develop members in their organizations over years in order to cultivate their expertise. A profession’s ethic shapes the values of the organization. These principals are the beliefs and rules the profession abides.
