With physical courage, it is a matter of enduring physical duress and at times risking personal safety.Facing moral fear or adversity may be a long, slow process of continuing forward on the right path, especially if taking those actions is not popular with others.A senior commander is not just any person given a rank and job.
As your integrity grows, so does the trust others place in you.
The more choices you make based on integrity, the more this highly prized value will affect your relationships with family and friends, and, finally, the fundamental acceptance of yourself.
Loyalty, duty, respect, commitment, honor, punctuality, reliable, integrity, and personal courage are Army core values.
Courage is the ability to stand up for ones beliefs and ethics that the Army has been bestowed on them, despite the danger they may face on duty.
Lack of this in a service member not only hinders the mission of the command but of the entire Army.
Respect is the integrity that one takes upon oneself in order to carry out the orders of the officers appointed over the service member.
Face fear, danger or adversity (physical or moral).
Personal courage has long been associated with our Army.
But how often do you see someone actually live up to them?
Soldiers learn these values in detail during Basic Combat Training (BCT), from then on they live them every day in everything they do — whether they’re on the job or off. Constitution, the Army, your unit and other Soldiers. And by doing your share, you show your loyalty to your unit. Doing your duty means more than carrying out your assigned tasks. Army is a complex combination of missions, tasks and responsibilities — all in constant motion.
