America's Army- Our Profession
"Living the Army Ethic"
On 1 October 2014 we began the FY 15-16 Army Profession theme, "Living the Army Ethic." Our Army Ethic describes Why and How We Serve as American Soldiers and is embodied in the Army's motto This We'll Defend! Its focus is our shared identity as trusted Army Professionals, Soldiers and Army Civilians, who are bound by a common moral purpose. All of us are volunteers, serving in the United States Army which is a trusted, honorable profession. We contribute to the common defense of our fellow citizens and our national interest. By solemn oath, we bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution.
