Abstract:

Following the methodology of former Army Chiefs of Staff when faced with times of change and turbulence, Secretary of the Army John M. McHugh and Chief of Staff of the Army General George W. Casey directed the initiation of the Profession of Arms campaign. The campaign and its accompanying study are the vehicles permitting senior leaders to assess the health of the Army. One of the products of the Profession of Arms campaign will be a revised White Paper that will serve as the first chapter in FM-1, The Army. That chapter will present the Army as a distinct profession while outlining the characteristics and attributes expected of its members. The characteristics serve as institutional and individual touchstones to guide the profession.
