Abstract:

As Leaders in the greatest Army every assembled, we are constantly bombarded and faced with ethical dilemmas requiring the implementation and use of the ethical decision making process to make the hard right over the easy wrong decisions. Soldiers, seniors, peers, and subordinates alike entrust in us the confidence that when we are faced with the ethical dilemma of releasing our wounded Warriors to seek mental help for PTSD or stigmatizing them as weak Warriors with the intent of getting them to deny their sickness to remain with the unit for the good of Personnel Readiness we will become ethical victors and get these wounded Warriors the medical help they truly desire.
