The Chief of Staff of the Army General Raymond Odierno delivered the keynote address at the Association of the United States Army's Dwight D. Eisenhower Luncheon, 14 Oct 2014. During the event, he explained to attendees what it means to be a "trusted professional."
The Army is putting into action what it means to be a profession and a professional, officials said Tuesday during the Association of the United States Army annual meeting.
For the first time, the service is putting in writing, in a single document, the Army ethic, a set of principles soldiers should live by, and integrating it into the service’s doctrine.
The Army is looking to train a soldier who can look at an enemy's cruelties -- including those inflicted on his buddies -- and not necessarily resort to the same brutality, officials said Wednesday at the Association of the U.S. Army's annual conference in Washington D.C.
Sustaining the theme of “Living the Army Ethic,” the Sergeant Major of the Army’s professional development forum put boots on the ground by acknowledging the core of the profession of arms: “how and why we fight.”
Earning that recognition for being the best takes hard work, discipline and determination. Encouraging Soldiers to be competitive is what it takes to be a great leader, Chandler said, speaking at the Sergeant Major of the Army, NCO and Soldier Forum at the annual meeting of the Association of the United States Army, Oct. 13.
But while being competitive is important, equally so is upholding the Army Profession, which is character, commitment and competence, something he said he's been speaking about every time he's visited Soldiers for the past three years as the sergeant major of the Army.
The profession of being a soldier means you are a professional every hour, all the time, said the Army’s top officer in a panel discussion Monday. Those who can’t enforce the changing norms within the Army should leave, he said.
“The professional ethic is not a 9-to-5-ethic. It’s a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week ethic,” said Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond Odierno. “It has to be a lifelong ethic.”
French, an ethics professor at Case Western Reserve University and author of the book "The Code of the Warrior," spoke to more than 100 senior NCOs at the Sergeant Major of the Army's Professional Development Forum at the annual meeting of the Association of the United States Army, Oct. 14.
The Army Profession demands that Soldiers adhere to the Army Ethic at all times, the Chief of Staff of the Army said.
Trust is the foundation of the ethic, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno said Oct. 13, here, during a Living the Army Ethic panel on "Why and How We Serve," at the Association of the United States Army annual meeting.
Perkins was the keynote speaker for the AUSA Civilian Professional Development Seminar, held Oct. 15. His address was followed by two hour-long civilian panel discussions.
