the rude behavior by not actually yelling “at easy”, and for that I apologize. I was out of place and even though I was having a “long day” that was and is no excuse. Showing lack of respect can lead to punishment (i.e. this report) and possibly UMCJ action if repeated. Respect should be given one hundred percent, at all times.

Respect plays a major role in the leadership position, especially in the seven ARMY values. Respect is how we consider others reflect upon each of us, both personally and as a professional organization. I need to live more by the seven ARMY values and enforce it not only in the military, but in my public and personal life.

Selfless Service is the epitome of “esprit de corps”. That is why we are in the military - we are defending the freedom of the American people at the risk of our own lives. It also is seen when a Soldier helps out another Soldier for no personal gain.

Honor is doing the right thing in everything you do. Honor is living up to the other six Army values. If a Soldier notices a problem that needs addressing, he has shown not only

Warrior Ethos

I will always place the mission first; this part of the ethos is very important. To me, it means that no matter what is going on in my life, I will always put my mission above my problems or worries. It takes extreme discipline to be able to block issues and concerns out sometimes, but following through with a mission in the United States Army is crucial. All missions in the army, big or small, happen for a reason. These core principles are what connect us to all the other soldiers fighting for our country. We all live by this one and the other three ethos. I believe having these principles is what makes the United States Army so strong and powerful.

I will never accept defeat; I try to apply this one in my everyday life. Not only will I never accept defeat in a mission for the army, but I will not accept defeat with anything I do. Military life is a lot different than what I am use to, but this report can help me apply all of the L.D.R.S.H.I.P. skills and The Solder’s Creed to my life. Many people give up too easily on the most important things in life. A soldier can get through the toughest problems when applying those factors.

I will never quit; “No one is ever guaranteed success if he keeps trying, but everyone is guaranteed failure if he gives up” (Michael Anthony). This quote is a prime example of what it means to not give up. In the army we don’t know if our mission will be a success or not, but we will follow through with the hopes of a positive outcome. I know I should never want to quit because I know that the small things can add up and become my future. (I.e. again while walking away on august 12th counseling session I quit the mission and thus the small problem lead to disrespecting sergeant George and then leading to another counseling on disrespect and lack of the army values)

The Warrior Ethos is a set of principles by which every Soldier lives. In a broader sense, the Warrior Ethos is a way of life that applies to our personal and professional lives as well. They define who we are and who we aspire to become.

The Army has worked to instill the Warrior Ethos in all our Soldiers by the way we train, live, and fight. Every Soldier that has entered Basic Training has been taught that the Warrior Ethos, rooted in Army values, and founded on the premise that service to our Nation is an honor and a responsibility that requires self-sacrifice. The very notion of service is founded on the premise that you give more than you get. This ethos has enabled our Soldiers to endure the rigors of combat and distinguish our Army on the battlefield by the character of our
