ADRP 1, The Army Profession, augments ADP 1, The Army. This ADRP defines and describes the Army Profession and the Army Ethic. 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.
Army Doctrine Publication (ADP) 1 is prepared under the direction of the Chief of Staff of the Army and is his vision for the Army. It states what the Army is, what the Army does, how the Army does it, and where the Army is going. It establishes the Army’s contribution to America’s landpower. ADP 1 delineates the Army’s mission, purpose, and roles, deriving them from the Constitution; the Congress, in Title 10, United States Code; and the Department of Defense, in Department of Defense Directive 5100.01.
Army doctrine reference publication (ADRP) 6-22 expands on the leadership principles established in Army doctrine publication (ADP) 6-22. ADRP 6-22 describes the Army’s view of leadership, outlines the levels of leadership (direct, organizational, and strategic), and describes the attributes and core leader competencies across all levels.
