The Army Ethic. Our professional ethic is expressed in law, Army Values, creeds, oaths, ethos, and shared beliefs embedded within Army culture. It
inspires and motivates the conduct of Army Professionals -- Soldiers and Army Civilians -- who are bound together in common moral purpose. It expresses
the standard and expectation for all of us to make right decisions and to take right actions at all times. It is the heart of our shared professional identity -- trusted Army Professional --
our sense of who we are, our purpose in life, and Why and How We Serve the American people.
