ADRP 1 - The Army Profession

14 June 2015

Army Doctrine Reference Publication (ADRP) 1 – The Army Profession, augments ADP 1 – The Army. This ADRP defines and describes the Army Profession and the Army Ethic, and it expands the discussion on the Army’s dual nature as a military department of the United States Government and, more importantly, a military profession. It identifies two mutually supportive communities of practice: the Profession of Arms (Soldiers) and the Army Civilian Corps (Army Civilians). It identifies the essential characteristics that define the Army as a profession: Trust, Honorable Service, Military Expertise, Stewardship, and Esprit de Corps. It discusses the certification criteria for Army professionals in character, competence, and commitment; and it describes the Army culture of trust and its inherent relationship with the Army Ethic, the heart of the Army Profession, inspiring and motivating our shared identity as trusted Army professionals.

ADRP 1 provides the foundation for Army training and education curricula on the Army Profession, the Army Ethic, and character development of Army professionals. The principal audience for this publication is all members of the Army Profession. Commanders and staffs of Army headquarters serving as joint task force or multinational headquarters should also refer to applicable joint or multinational doctrine concerning the range of military operations and joint or multinational forces. Trainers and educators throughout the Army will also use this publication.
