Punctual is a good thing to be but in order to be that you need to pay attention and be at your appointed place of duty on time and in the right uniform. By doing this it will be a start at setting you up as a good leader or Non-Commissioned Officer. Military and leadership are inseparable if your in the military then your either in control of leadership or being controlled by leadership in some type of way. By this being this being the truth there is no excuse of being late and it is not to be tolerated. As a leader you already know that
Another is when a member of the armed forces issues a certain lawful order, the other member gains knowledge of the order, that member of the military is expected and required to follow the order but does not. The last is when you are given a certain duty. When you assume the duty you have agreed that all the orders and responsibilities that are given to that duty are now in your hands. When you neglect to do what the responisibilities of that duty are or if do things half way and do things like nothing matters you can also be charged with
Respect is important because society needs to have a positive perception of the Army in order for it to be successful. Selfless Service is putting the needs of the Army before your own, but also taking care of yourself and your subordinates. Honor provides the moral compass for individuals. It is the glue for the Army Values. Integrity and personal courage are important because a Soldier must do what is right all the time even if they are scared.
Being late is becoming a more and more common trend among people of all walks of life, especially in the United States Army. This is completely unacceptable and it violates the Army Values, costs the military more money, and reflect very poorly on the soldier and his first line supervisor. There are many methods available to prevent being late as well as proper steps to take once you know you are going to be late and there is nothing else you can do about it. The Army Values, Leadership, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. When you are late to anything, whether it be a formation or appointment, it goes against nearly all of these values that are instilled in all soldiers.
There is no proof that this story has any truth. There is something no one has considered, the danger to our own soldiers when they are captured. Here again I quote: “Worse, you'll have the other side effects of torture. It "endangers our soldiers on the battlefield by encouraging reciprocity." It does "damage to our country's image" and undermines our credibility in Iraq.” (Applebaum) It undermines the work of our soldiers that are helping make Iraq into a country ruled by its people instead of a dictator.
It is widely recognised that the military and the soldiers individually are part of a community that would demand of them to put their personal and professional values aside to serve the moral good. It is not believed to be the responsibility of the military to assess whether or not a war is just – certainly not down to the individual soldier. Wolfendale argues that each soldier has a duty to familiarise his/herself with the principles of just war theory to be able to assess themselves, whether they are partaking in a just war. Arguments Wolfendale supports her claim by first identifying the military as a profession, which in itself demands professional integrity, i.e. a way of determining the best way to conduct the work as a soldier and where the moral limits to that service is – when the soldier should stop fighting the war.
Their stress under the unbearable conditions in Iraq damages the mental health of the American troops. In an article on war trauma Greg Mitchell says, “Nearly one in five soldiers deployed in Iraq, now more than 300,000, suffer post traumatic stress disorder, according to the of-cited RAND Corp. study.” Troops that are mentally unstable or mentally ill from the conditions of war should not be forced to continue to fight in an environment that will only make them sicker. Unfortunately, they continue to experience the same situation that made them unstable. They become an unhinged fighting force happy to kill. This cycle creates more killers and more
In my opinion it is one of the most important of all of them. It is very important but without the other values, Duty by itself cannot assist in accomplishing the mission. We still have the other values like leadership, respect, selfless service, honesty, integrity, and personal courage. These all set up the framework for us to be able to accomplish or duty as soldiers. All of them work hand in hand with each other.
No one in the Army has more todo with soldiers than NCOs. Duties also include giving punishments and rewards as it states in the NCO Creed. When giving punishments and NCO must be fair with all soldiers for example two soldiers do the same thing wrong an NCO can not be strong on one and lenient on the other. This is called favoritism which is most definitely not being fair at all. The same thing applies for rewards two soldiers do the same thing an NCO can not give one of them a higher reward.
The consequences of someone not following orders could be serious or even life threatening. For example an army officer may have to give soldiers an order which could put them in a very dangerous situation, they will have to obey that order and that will make them disciplined soldiers. All the public services in the UK have a reputation of a high standard organisation and order and it’s down to their discipline, without it this wouldn’t be the case. People of different ranks in the services have to respect each other especially those
