Abstract:

The senior leadership of the Army realizes the important role values play in the Army. Values allow the operating norms and rules of the Army to become meaningful, stable, positive and hence, capable of being internalized. In the past, the Army has collected data on the values of active duty soldiers. However there is only limited knowledge of the values new recruits bring to the Army or their relationship to the seven core values-Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage-emphasized by the Army leadership. In this effort, these core and other values were assessed among entering Active Army recruits so as to establish the basis for tracking soldier values from initial entry training through the first tour of duty.
