Five minute Video that features Army Soldiers explaining their definition of each Army Value.


     
Loyalty LOYALTY
LOYALTY

Introductory video on Loyalty. Bear true faith and allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, the Army, your unit and other Soldiers. Bearing true faith and allegiance is a matter of believing in and devoting yourself to something or someone. A loyal Soldier is one who supports the leadership and stands up for fellow Soldiers. By wearing the uniform of the U.S. Army you are expressing your loyalty. And by doing your share, you show your loyalty to your unit.

SGT Purchase describes one of the female Soldiers in his Platoon whom he admired. She rose quickly into a leadership position and set the example for her Soldiers. After re-deployment, members of the unit move to different Army posts and positions. SGT Purchase finds out the female soldier had bone cancer—and later died. He weighs the decision to go to her funeral, realizing that his wife may misunderstand his motives for going and because financially it will be difficult.

DUTY DUTY
DUTY

Introductory video on Duty. Fulfill your obligations. Doing your duty means more than carrying out your assigned tasks. Duty means being able to accomplish tasks as part of a team. The work of the U.S. Army is a complex combination of missions, tasks and responsibilities — all in constant motion. Our work entails building one assignment onto another. You fulfill your obligations as a part of your unit every time you resist the temptation to take “shortcuts” that might undermine the integrity of the final product.
SFC Schuler SFC Schuler
DUTY
DUTY

SFC Schuler describes being off duty and seeing Soldiers “downtown.” One night he and a fellow NCO observed a Soldier from their unit. The first time they saw him they said “Hi” and moved on. They saw him at the end of the night and observed that he was extremely drunk and heading toward his car.
SFC Macdonald SFC Macdonald
DUTY
DUTY

SFC MacDonald describes being a medic at Bucca Prison in Iraq—the largest detention facility in that country in 2005. He describes the hostile conditions and the violence within the perimeter. He was responsible as a medic to care both for the MPs in his unit and for the detainees. Medics gave proactive health-care even to insurgents. One day, a detainee is severely injured during a fight and his friends carry him to the fence. SFC MacDonald describes the conflict between his desire and Duty as a medic to treat the man bleeding out on the other side of the fence, and his Duty as a medic and a Soldier to not enter the perimeter until it is secure.
Respect RESPECT
RESPECT

Introductory video on Respect. Treat people as they should be treated. In the Soldier’s Code, we pledge to “treat others with dignity and respect while expecting others to do the same.” Respect is what allows us to appreciate the best in other people. Respect is trusting that all people have done their jobs and fulfilled their duty. And self-respect is a vital ingredient with the Army value of respect, which results from knowing you have put forth your best effort. The Army is one team and each of us has something to contribute.
SGT Dee SGT Dee

One of the Turkish trucks is on fire and the driver is standing in the kill zone screaming for help. SFC Thompson is driving precious cargo and is ordered to “push through.”
Selfless Service SELFLESS SERVICE
SELFLESS SERVICE

Introductory video on Selfless Service. Put the welfare of the Nation, the Army and your subordinates before your own. Selfless service is larger than just one person. In serving your country, you are doing your duty loyally without thought of recognition or gain. The basic building block of selfless service is the commitment of each team member to go a little further, endure a little longer, and look a little closer to see how he or she can add to the effort.
SSG Spaid SSG Spaid

Honor HONOR
HONOR

Introductory video on Honor. Live up to Army values. The Nation’s highest military award is The Medal of Honor. This award goes to Soldiers who make honor a matter of daily living — Soldiers who develop the habit of being honorable, and solidify that habit with every value choice they make. Honor is a matter of carrying out, acting, and living the values of respect, duty, loyalty, selfless service, integrity and personal courage in everything you do.

Integrity INTEGRITY
INTEGRITY

Introductory video on Integrity. Do what’s right, legally and morally. Integrity is a quality you develop by adhering to moral principles. It requires that you do and say nothing that deceives others. 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.
SSG Miner SSG Miner
INTEGRITY
INTEGRITY

SSG Miner talks about the importance of doing the right thing as an Aviation mechanic, and about the trust pilots have in the mechanics to do the right thing.

SSG Huntley SSG Huntley
INTEGRITY
INTEGRITY

SSG Huntley describes losing his Platoon Leader to a sniper in Iraq. The Platoon later finds out where the sniper is living, and plans a deliberate raid to kill or capture him.

He discusses the possibility of killing the sniper in his house—regardless of whether or not he tries to surrender.
Personal Courage PERSONAL COURAGE
PERSONAL COURAGE

Introductory video on Personal Courage. Face fear, danger or adversity (physical or moral). Personal courage has long been associated with our Army. 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. You can build your personal courage by daily standing up for and acting upon the things that you know are honorable.

PERSONAL COURAGE
PERSONAL COURAGE

PV2 Cevidanes describes growing up in Brazil and struggling with her decision to join the Army. Her father was opposed to the decision and encouraged her to attend college first. The cultural norm for PV2 Cevidanes was for women NOT to serve in the Army. She balances the input of her father with advice from some respected mentors.
PV2 Colter PV2 Colter
PERSONAL COURAGE
PERSONAL COURAGE

Personal courage is both physical and moral—physical, as we overcome fears of bodily harm to do our duty and moral, as we seek to do what is right even when unpopular. In both cases, we know what we need to do and—despite the risk to ourselves—we do it. PV2 Colter describes wanting to get out of the Army any way he can!
