STAND-TO! - The Army Ethic

What is it?

The Army Ethic inspires and motivates the conduct of Army Professionals -- Soldiers and Army civilians -- who are bound together in common moral purpose. It expresses the standard and expectation for all to make right decisions and to take right actions at all times. It is the heart of the Army's shared identity of trusted Army Professional.

The Army Ethic has three supporting roles:

  1. Honorable Servants of the Nation-Professionals of Character
  2. Army Experts-Competent Professionals
  3. Stewards of the Army Profession- Committed Professionals.

A revised version of ADRP 1: The Army Profession released in conjunction with the U.S. Army's 240th birthday, includes a concise articulation of its ethic in a new Chapter 2: The Army Ethic.
