Military Culture The beliefs, values, and customs that are associated with the armed forces has cultivated into a unique culture within the military community (Hall, 2016, p. 41). In essence, a sub-culture has been established that is distinctly different from the culture of the United States. Thus, those that enter military service resign themselves to the fact that the military lifestyle is a departure from the civilian lifestyle and therefore, will differ from society as a whole. The military itself is rigidly structured, an aspect that essential not just to the military’s purpose, but to its continued existence. Thus, personnel, and by extension their families, are required to not only adhere to the many rules and regulations, but embrace them as well (Hall, 2016). Honor is a central tenet within the armed services and is ingrained within the culture (Hall, 2016). As such, the military mission has created a culture that champions having “the right stuff”, so to speak, and encourages the suppression of feelings and emotions (Hall, 2016, p. 11). Moreover, this warrior society embraces secrecy, stoicism, and denial, as these concepts are viewed as essential ingredients to the success of the self,

The Brigade will advocate its commitment to the Army’s core values by focusing on Honor, Personal Courage, and Duty because these three values summarize what an ethical warrior must be. The other Army’s values remain important but focusing on three will bring clarity and simplicity. Honor is a “code of personal integrity.” This code ties the Army to the Nation. It is of course the soldiers’ honor to risk their lives to defend the nation. But it is also their honor to fight in accordance with American values. The US Army’s ethical warriors fight their enemies with determination, but respect. Acts of crime, misconduct, and ethical breaches
Members of the military services should be aware of any insider threat indicators presented by others to ensure the proper steps are implemented in the early stages and safeguard classified information. At this point, we should understand desperate people in desperate situations mainly derive espionage cases. Following this, it is essential for all soldiers recognize any form of threats to our nation’s national security and report these incidents immediately before they can harm our country. In addition to Martin’s espionage case, we can further understand the importance of securing classified information because it can seriously destroy relationships between countries. As a result, Martin deserved the punishment given to him because he knew the consequences of betraying his country. This case clearly indicates the reasons why we should have good communications at work and recognize individuals that may have issues that could possibly become an insider threat. Finally, we must be the change we wish to see among others, because every single person in this world can make the slightest perfection in another person’s
Soldiers should live “Duty, Honor, Country,” but what does that entail? The speech given in 1962 to the young cadets at Westpoint was an influential piece still referred to today. In General MacArthur’s address “Duty, Honor, Country Address at West Point,” I will identify the rhetorical devices, persuasive appeals, perspective, and tone used, as well as the impact those devices have on the meaning of this speech.

Moments of seeming self-pity, sarcasm and pride somehow combined seamlessly into Capt. Lee Kelley’s article, “A Letter to the Republic.” The writer spends his ten or so paragraphs to illustrate those daily, mundane, ordinary things that those of us not fighting for this country in foreign lands take for granted, the trivial tasks that a person deployed overseas would be happy to perform.
Navy sailors stand by their core values of honor, courage, and commitment. According to the Navy Ethos, integrity is understood as the foundation of a sailor’s conduct; integrity is the attribute of being honest (Merriam Webster’s Dictionary). Integrity fits into two core values, which are honor and commitment. Furthermore, sailors do not waver in their commitment to their families. Commander Ward showed no honor or ethical morals when making the decisions he made. In addition to not showing honor, Ward showed no commitment to his wife. Commitment can be defined as a promise to be faithful and devoted (Merriam Webster’s Dictionary). The Navy Ethos discusses the importance of not wavering in the dedication towards shipmates or family (Navy Ethos). Ward was not dedicated to his wife who he swore to protect and be faithful to, which is no different than the country he swore to protect and be faithful to when entering the Navy. Now that I have discussed how the ultimate deceit contradicted the Navy’s Core Values; this paper will provide a recommendation of how to keep the integrity and honesty essential characteristics of every
The rules and laws that ethical military leaders are required to follow are clearly defined in the reading. In order to assure a democratic system and to prevent one entity from completely controlling the armed forces, the responsibilities are divided between the President, Congress, Judiciary System, and the Supreme Law of the Land.1 Each of these groups issue orders and treaties that can determine how the military can act in a given situation. A Constitutional Paradigm exists so that a service member can make sound decisions and issue lawful orders with clarity by prioritizing the validity of the Constitution at the top and self at the bottom. In the rare cases of questionable orders from a commander, a step-by-step resolution guide that

When we were younger we were always told by our parents to behave and follow the rules in school and to be nice to the other children. At school they had a set of rules that we were meant to follow and abide by them. Here in the Marine Corps is no different there are many rules and regulations that are meant to be followed under the UCMJ Articles.
