Abstract:

This paper is the view of one career soldier on some matters that affect our sense of ethical conduct, such matters being defined as points of honor. The author is not an ethicist but is concerned about some fundamental points of honor Who should be expected to be honorable, whether we should attempt to codify our expectations, our responsibility for choosing the wars we fight, the effects of semantics on what we think we are, and the effects of fusing honor with religion. There are some suggestions as to what we might do differently with regard to whose honor we should be concerned about, whether we should try to codify and systematize it, how we might better define what it is, and who should help us make it a more conscious factor in our lives. Keywords Honor, Military Ethics, Duty, Loyalty.
