Abstract:

This thesis examined the CAPE Army Ethic. It uses a three-phased approach, first conducting a survey to determine perceptions of relevancy among CGSS officers. Second, it uses a comparative analysis to determine how the CAPE-proposed Army Ethic adheres to principles of ethical codes in other professions and military organizations. Third, it conducts an analysis of the moral principles of the U.S. Constitution to determine the CAPE-proposed Army Ethics adherence to the national values as espoused in the United States foundational documents. This analysis identified one major area for improvement in the CAPE-proposed Army Ethic, centered on the development of a unique professional identity for the American military, as well as several other minor areas for improvement. This thesis then recommends adjustments to the proposed ethic, and concludes by offering implications for the Army as an organization.
