Odierno was quoted in Army Doctrine Reference Publication (ADRP) 1-0 as saying “[We will] foster continued commitment to the Army Profession, a noble and selfless calling founded on the bedrock of trust.”2 As the Chief of Staff of the Army, General Odierno calls to focus the foundation of trust that is a necessary priority in the career model of professional Soldiers. Trust is found within the ranks of the Army as an earned credit to individuals who have proven to live the Army values through their actions and give sound guidance fostered by experience. Trust is gained with the public through positive actions and a consistent record of accomplishment. ADRP 1-0 states that “The Army cannot simply declare itself to be a profession; the American people, not the Army, determine when the U.S. Army is serving them as a military profession.”3 With enduring trust in Soldier’s capabilities, the Army will continue to be seen as a profession and build upon what it means to be a professional
“We Take Our Responsibility Seriously “ Responsibility and integrity are very closely linked. Integrity must be present for a person to be able to accept failure in being accountable. Responsibility is not stagnant in higher levels of command. Every soldier whether Officer or enlisted is responsible for sustaining the essential military capabilities he possess. Specifically to the officer over a platoon or unit, who might not be in control, but is directly responsible for these troops.
The military is a big commitment by both you and the military. In the United States Army, military bearing is the reason why every service member practices this so they can take orders to carry out good discipline and ethics throughout their military service. Army regulations and The Articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice show us how a military service member should conduct themselves on a daily basis. All soldiers have an obligation to conduct themselves like they are adults and to show respect to the ranks above them. If a Soldier fails to do so they are also breaking rules and regulations set in place by regulations and UCMJ.
SPC DaBrent Nobles Military Customs and Courtesies I am a soldier of the United States Army, and when I took the vow to become such, I signed up to uphold a certain standard when in public and behind closed doors. I have the upmost respect for my peers and superiors around me who took the same vow. We all vowed to be away from our families for unknown amounts of time to protect and defend my country and its allies. I also have pride in what I do because I know it is necessary to keep my country running. The army has helped me to establish this pride in myself and what I do.
Accountability Is something that is very important and leader and superiors in the Military or in any job for that reason, for the simple fact that it is not only a requirement for you but also very important to your supervisors or chain of command depending on your situation. You can resort to accountability for many reason when it comes to daily productivity as a team or group. Maintaining accountability of anything wether it be equipment or people can be very helpful when it comes to dividing tasks and assignments or just keeping track of everybody or everything you are in charge of. Punctuality is also very important and plays a very big part in accountability, for example, a soldier is late to formation and doesn’t inform his supervisor, this can lead to his supervisor not being able to provide accurate numbers to his/her
The United States Army, one of the nation’s strongest Armed Forces, considers morale to be one of its core values. The idea behind this core value is to teach confidence, enthusiasm, and discipline so that Soldiers are successful. High levels of morale make it easier to remain focused while performing daily duties. Whether it’s an Army of a million men, or a small group of individuals, morale definitely affects the quality of work produced.
Constraints such as the avoidance for a soldier to intentionally harm a civilian is one of the basic principles which combatants from both sides of the war are expected to obey. Since, Jus in bello provides equal responsibilities and constraints for soldiers fighting on both (just and unjust) side of the war, under these circumstances,
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.
As per the Army Doctrine Publication 6-22, “Toxic leadership is a combination of self-centered attitudes, motivations, and behaviors that have adverse effects on subordinates, the organization, and mission performance. This leader lacks concern for others and the climate of the organization, which leads to short- and long-term negative effects”. One would think that leadership gets better as you move up in rank in the military but I have a different take. I think is something that needs to be address in an educational manner. Regardless of the rank of the individual, soldiers in the military must complete a series of training before gaining their military occupation specialty and their rank.
A more robust accessions program is crucial to the future of the warrant officer cohort. This is the first step in selecting and developing our future leaders within our ranks. First and foremost our current warrant officers must be the honest broker when recommending a soldier. If a soldier does not meet the technical competencies that are required of them in the position they are currently serving then how can they be expected to be the future of our cohort. The senior warrant officer who is recommending the applicant must hold the value of the warrant officer cohort above his or her own loyalty to the person they are recommending.
How does this idea translate into our reality? The answer, I submit, is that it doesn 't. Rather, it translates into our realities; for every human being, courage will mean something different, and all definitions are quite valid. For example, it seems to be a common idea amongst the American people that our military embodies concepts such as courage, patriotism, and selflessness, and that our soldiers deserve a deep respect for their service. Someone more personally detached from the military might not be as inclined to agree with this idea as, say, someone who lives near a military area, or someone with family members in the military- however, the idea is still just as valid.
These principals are the beliefs and rules the profession abides. They motivate the professionals and ensure they are held to the highest standards. The Army’s primary responsibility is to fight and to protect the United States. The Army Profession is the only profession that provides protection to the American people. Due to this unique responsibility, the society must decide for its self if they trust
In addition it is also illegal and against UCMJ laws and regulations. Sexual harassment is also morally unjust and against the soldiers creed. The following exerts from the creed read, “I am a warrior and a member of a team”, “I am an expert and I am a professional.”, “I serve the American people and live the Army values” (US Army, 2015). The Army’s position requires it to remain an ever-ready responsive force. A force that must be able to deploy and be effective in any environment.
