Army Values Essay

This Essay is to explain the Army Values and how they pertain to the mistake I made. In the US army we are taught to live by the 7 army values.   They are broken down to us in the acronym ‘LDRSHIP’.   Loyalty “Bear true faith and allegiance to the U.S. constitution, the Army, and other soldiers.”   Duty   “Fulfill your obligations.”   Respect   “Treat people as they should be treated.”   Selfless Service   “Put the welfare of the nation, the Army and your subordinates above your own.”   Honor  “Live up to the army values.” Integrity   “Do what’s right legally and morally.” and Personal Courage   “Face fear, danger or adversity (physical or moral).”   We are all drilled on these 7 army ...view middle of the document...

In my situation I did not show loyalty because I not only did the wrong thing myself I allowed my Non Commissioned Officer to do it as well. In this case I not only let myself down I let down, seniors my subordinates and my peers. This was an even bigger issue for my situation because I let the Army down as a whole, by allowing myself to half to be held accountable by a military member from another service.

The next Army Value I failed to uphold was Honor, My honor is my most valuable possession; if I lose it, everything else is worthless. In military service, honor is probably the prime motivation for your actions and underlies the other six Army Values. Honor compels you to adhere to the Army Values and gives you the ability to make moral decisions based on your deep personal values and your conscience. Honor requires you to exceed standards whenever possible and uphold the Soldier’s Creed and my oath as an non commissioned officer. Strive to uphold your honor in all you do. It’s often said that human beings have a “moral compass” inside—an invisible mechanism that automatically points people toward the right thing to do. Our Honor is that moral compass. You can certainly ignore your moral compass; sometimes circumstances shake it so badly that, for a time, it no longer points true. But when you reflect on your honor, the compass needle always seems to return to the right course. That’s where our personal honor help. It gives each individual, team, platoon, company, division, and the Army an orientation for moral decisions in everyday life, especially during stressful situations. I let my Honor or my prime motivation, slip. I did not hold true to what I knew was right and just did what I thought would be ok for this time. I must always focus on my moral compass and do what I know to be right even when the decisions are difficult. I understand that my personnel honor was put...
