In the US army we are taught to live by the 7-army values. Â They are broken down to us in the acronym â€˜LDRSHIPâ€™ (pronounced as leadership). Loyalty Â â€œBear true faith and allegiance to the U.S. constitution, the Army, and other soldiers.â€ Â Duty Â â€œFulfill your obligations.â€ Â Respect Â â€œTreat people as they should be treated.â€ Â Selfless Service Â â€œPut the welfare of the nation, the Army and your subordinates above your own.â€ Â Honor Â â€œLive up to the army values.â€ Integrity Â â€œDo whatâ€™s right legally and morally.â€ Personal Courage Â â€œFace fear, danger or adversity (physical or moral).â€ Â We are all drilled on these 7 army values from day one of basic training.

Â That when the time comes, you will be there to do what needs to be done. Â You will be true and faithful to them no matter the outcome. Â If the loyalty is not observed by both parties involved however, then that sense of loyalty may eventually change or even fade.
Duty to me is accomplishing a task that needs to be done, no matter how much youâ€™d rather be doing something else whether you love it or hate it. Â The task is there to be done. Â If one does not fulfill their duties on a regular basis then those around them have to pick up the slack and any sense of loyalty begins to become tarnished. Everyone wants to be respected. Â Itâ€™s in our nature, but in order to obtain respect, first of allâ€¦.one has to respect oneself. Â Second, one has to show respect to others in order to gain respect from them. Â Selfless service simply means that Put the welfare of the nation, the Army, and your subordinates before your own.â€¨Selfless service leads to organizational teamwork and encompasses discipline, self-control and faith in the system. Honor means live up to all the army values. Integrity is also important criteria for the army values. Do what is right, legally and morally. Be willing to do what is right even when no one is looking. It is our "moral compass" an inner voice. Personal courage is Our ability to face fear, danger, or adversity, both physical and moral courage.
â€œArmy Valuesâ€ is not merely a phrase for how members of the Army should act; they are who we are. We emulate the seven Army Values because they are the standard for behavior, not only in the Army, but in any ordered society. I have always been told that I am a soldier 24/7. Since I have committed to be a service member, I should live up to all 7 army values.
