The Army Values

The are seven core Army values that every soldier is expected to live up to.

From GoArmy dot com:

Soldiers learn these values in detail during Basic Combat Training (BCT), from then on they live them every day in everything they do—whether they’re on the job or off. In short, the Seven Core Army Values listed below are what being a Soldier is all about.

Selfless Service
Personal Courage.

These are the Army values.

I carry a card in my wallet that defines each of these values. Here's the definition of Respect:


Treat people as they should be treated. In the Soldier’s Code, we pledge to “treat others with dignity and respect while expecting others to do the same.” Respect is what allows us to appreciate the best in other people. Respect is trusting that all people have done their jobs and fulfilled their duty. And self-respect is a vital ingredient with the Army value of respect, which results from knowing you have put forth your best effort. The Army is one team and each of us has something to contribute.

Just in case anyone was wondering what ideals the United States Army stand for.
