(2) Duty is obedient and disciplined performance. Soldiers with a sense of duty accomplish tasks given them, seize opportunities for self-improvement, and accept responsibility from their superiors. Soldiers, leader and led alike, work together to accomplish the mission rather than feed their self-interest. (3) Integrity is a way of life. Demonstrated integrity is the basis for dependable, consistent information, decisionmaking, and delegation of authority.
Using The Core Values Everyday Many people know the words Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage and what they mean, but how often do we actually live up to them? I learned the Seven Core Army Values through JROTC and ROTC programs and I have noticed that I practically use them everyday. I show loyalty by believing in myself and my fellow cadets here with me in this ROTC program. I will support my leadership and also stand up for the team/cadets. Another way that I show loyalty is by wearing the uniform of the U.S. Army.
The same thing applies for rewards two soldiers do the same thing an NCO can not give one of them a higher reward. There are three types of duties specified duties which are those related to jobs and positions, directed duties which are not specified as part of a job position or MOS or other directive, and implied duties which often support specified duties. A good leader executes the boss’s decisions with energy and enthusiasm; looking at their leader, soldiers will believe the leader thinks it’s absolutely the best possible solution. As a leader we must ensure that our soldiers clearly understand their responsibilities as members of the team and as representative of the Army. Responsibility is being accountable for what we do or fail to do.
Air Force Core Values “The foundation is integrity, fortified by a commitment to the service of our country, and fueled by a drive in excellence in all that we do. The Air Force recognizes integrity first, service before self, and excellence as its core values. These are values every member must believe in, and more importantly, must live by. They are not just words, they are the standard. The core values are much more than the standard for work, they are a standard for life.
Another Army value that would go together with duty would be selfless service. Selfless service is the act of putting once self before a particular group. The group that we as soldiers put ourselves before is the citizens of our country and other counties that need our assistance such as Iraq and Afghanistan. It is the value that would instill duty in us as a soldier. Without selfless service, we would not be in the Army performing our duties today.
As a Seabee, it is my duty and responsibility to maintain the highest degree of integrity while serving my country with honor, courage, and commitment in the United States Navy. When I think of the word "integrity" as a person, I think naturally of pms checks. When we perform maintenance, we value the assurance that we have completed the check to the best of our ability, because the battalion relies on us to make sure the equipment has been inspected, both during PMS, and during prestart. As a member of naval mobile construction battalion eleven, I have been taught the importance of taking care of our civil engineer support equipment and ensuring the quality of their condition whenever we inspect and conduct maintenance on them. Every one of my shipmates' lives depends on my personal integrity in ensuring that our civil engineer support equipment are squared away.
Esprit de corps is a traditional military expression that denotes the Army’s common spirit, a collective ethos of camaraderie and cohesion within the team. Esprit de corps exists at all levels, influencing individual morale, team cohesion, and ethos within the Army Profession. It is reflected in motivation, morale and discipline of the soldiers in a unit. Pride in what they are doing for their families and the American people, as well as just knowing they are doing something good with their lives but living up to the army morals and values. Espirit De Corps in a unit can be based on the experience and history of the unit as well as customs and traditions unique to it.
One required act of military courtesy is the salute. Regulations governing its use are founded on military custom deeply rooted in tradition. The salute is a symbol of respect and a sign of comradeship among service personnel. The salute is simple and dignified; but, there is great significance in that gesture. It is a time-honored demonstration of courtesy among all military personnel that expresses mutual respect and pride in the service.
Respect within the army basically means treat others as you (EH) would want to be treated. It is one of the (EH) basic Army Values. It is by far one of the (EH) most important values that we have. It is the one (EH) that keeps everyone acting polite and courteous towards everyone. This (EH) is one of the NCO’s basic responsibilities to make sure (EH) that everyone has respect.
The military also tries to instill morals and values into their soldiers. The Army has Army values; loyalty, duty, respect, selfless-service, honor, integrity, and personal courage. Upholding these values has become a way of life for soldiers, including myself. Obligation/ Deontology C. D. Broad’s theory of deontology implies that each person has an obligation to be ethically and morally straight. I agree with this science of duty, although I do not follow deontology very strictly.
