SHARP Solutions: Army Profession the Cornerstone of Dialogue and Building Trust in Soldiers

"When you think about the Army Profession, it really gets after our character, our competence and our commitment," said Maj. Gen. Michael D. Lundy, USAACE and Fort Rucker commanding general, in his opening comments at the Sexual Harassment/Assault Response Program (SHARP) Summit held at the USAACE Headquarters Sept 10. "[The Army Profession] talks about how we must treat each other with dignity and respect. When you think about mission command, it's about building on the effective team where there is shared understanding and trust between the leader and the led. If you start getting after that, sexual assault and sexual harassment cannot thrive, and we create an environment where it becomes much harder for Soldiers to violate another Soldier's dignity and respect -- that increases combat readiness."

Commentary: The Ethic is written; next step, implement a training program

Conrad Brown recently wrote an article for Task & Purpose entitled "Enforcing the Army's Definition of Professional Ethic Requires More Than a Written Document." In the article, Brown argues that the codifying and publishing Army Profession and Army Ethic concepts into Army Doctrine Reference Publication 1 was the easy part; now we have to do the hard part: spread the concepts and get soldiers to apply and accept the principles. That requires much more work.
