Navy core values and the importance of being on time Integrity is the heart and the very essence of each Navy Core Value, but more importantly, it is the foundation on which every aspect of seabee operations is built. Integrity must be the standard instilled within the innermost heart of every man who takes a mission to the uttermost parts of the world. It is integrity that bonds the crew of a battalion so tightly together that when faced with any circumstance, each individual can trust his shipmate to meet the needs of the moment. Integrity comes from within each man's heart and is revealed through his respect for the standards of conduct. 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.
Part of his leadership philosophy contained the Air Force Core Values and he did his best to embody those values not only during this crisis, but throughout his time as a commander and always as an Air Force member.

The core values are much more than the standard for work, they are a standard for life. We volunteered to serve our country and should remember that our individual actions define not just us but also the Air Force. These are the standards that not only our superiors expect of us, but more importantly our team members. The bond we create through training and war is a bond built upon these values. The three Air Force Core Values reminds myself of the way I was raised and the morals my family instilled in my mind.
CUSTOMS AND COURTESIES FM 7-21-13 Chapter 4 The Army is an organization that instills pride in its soldiers because of its history, mission, capabilities, and the respect it has earned in the service of the Nation. A reflection of their pride is shown in the customs and courtesies the Army holds. Customs-are established practices which consist of: positive actions, things you do and things you avoid. Now Army customs consist of: never going over the head of superiors, don’t jump chain of command, never offer excuses, never appear in uniform while under the influences of alcohol and drugs, never use the platoon sergeants rank, for example: (saying the platoon sergeant wants this done, when in fact the first sergeant said no such thing) and last but not least never try to bribe another soldier into doing something for your personal gain. Taking pride in your uniform is also part of the Army customs.
This (EH) is one of the NCO’s basic responsibilities to make sure (EH) that everyone has respect. This is something that everyone has (EH) to make sure that they are teaching everyone at an (EH) early time once they arrive into the unit. Even when (EH) a person first enters the Army they are taught the (EH) meaning of respect within the Military. Sometimes in the Military (EH) we often lack respect when we don’t truly understand the (EH) meaning of the word. We throw around the word 'respect' (EH) very effortlessly, as a single cure-all for everything we (EH) do.
Another way that I show loyalty is by wearing the uniform of the U.S. Army. Not only am I a Cadet but a Student Athlete as well. I will come to practice and training to better my performance as well as score points for the team to participate in big events; which fall under duty. "Treating others with dignity and respect while expecting others to do the same," is what I live by. Respect is trusting that all people have done their jobs and fulfilled their duty.
Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature or that is confided to me in my official capacity will be kept ever secret unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty (Policecodes, 2012). •I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities or friendships to influence my decisions.

Demonstrated integrity is the basis for dependable, consistent information, decisionmaking, and delegation of authority.
