Abstract:

In April 1978 the United States Military Academys Committee on Ethics and Professionalism began its publication of Ethics and the Military Profession. Since that first issue, the publication has presented topics such as The NCO and the Professional Ethic, Sports and the Military, and Values and the Professional Soldier. The purpose of this journal is the stimulation of dialogue and research among West Point Staff and Faculty in topics that would assist in the integration of Ethics and Professionalism courses with the cadet experience. This issue of the Ethics and the Military Profession makes a modest attempt to consider the multiple and often conflicting demands of honor. The topic is admittedly difficult and open-ended, but it is of vital interest to us as professionals and as the instructors of future professionals. Since the purpose of this journal is the discussion of issues that will promote the integration of ethics and professionalism, response to this issue and suggestions for further discussion are welcomed.
