Abstract : The Army's inchoate professional Ethic attempts to fill a significant gap in the Army's attempt to maintain professional status. It demonstrates the intentionality to address ethical failures by promulgating an aspirational Ethic focused on The Trustworthy Army Profession who has character, competence, and commitment. Is the Army Ethic sufficient for the Army profession? The Army Ethic passes screening criteria from an external literature review, which makes it a viable option as an Ethic. It also does better than the current, inaccessible Ethic with the evaluation criteria. Based on the research, the Army Ethic is sufficient for the Army profession. However, the Ethic could improve in several ways.
