Title Army Ethic, Public Trust, and the Profession of Arms.
Publication Date Sep 2011
Media Count 9p
Personal Author J. R. Caslen N. K. Finney
Abstract In adapting to the demands of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as to the new strategic realities of the 21st century, our Army has been so busy that we have not consistently thought through how those challenges, and our solutions to them, have affected the institution as a profession. To address this issue, our Army's senior leadership began a campaign of learning to understand what impact the last 10 years of war have had on the profession of arms. This campaign will identify where we need to bolster professional successes and where we need to address deficiencies evident from the last decade of war. This effort has only just begun, but what is clear is that the three key concepts tying all aspects of the Profession of Arms together are our professional ethic, our professional standards, and trust. To be a professional is to understand, embrace, and competently practice the specific ethic and expertise of the profession and to abide by the profession's standards.
