Ethics are principles of right or wrong behavior. In the Army we define ethics as standards of conduct governing the members of a profession. I believe ethics are beliefs and values we learn over a lifetime; a set of rules so to speak to live by. Like most I received my first set of ethics from my parents. For example, you had to eat all your food in our family before you could get your kool aid. Be home before the streetlights come on, Dont talk back just listen; and the famous If you are going to live in my house it will be by my rules. Even in todays Army, we have personal values that we live by, the Army has a set of values that we as leaders, to include soldiers, must adhere to. These values spell the acronym LDRSHIP. The values are Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honesty, Integrity, and Personal Courage.
