Divergent Ethics: Facing a Foreign Partner Who Has a Different Moral Code

https://www.ausa.org/articles/divergent-ethics-facing-foreign-partner-who-has-different-moral-code

American soldiers routinely deploy overseas to advise and assist other countries’ security forces that do not share the U.S. military’s high ethical standards. These divergent standards can create tension between the two partnered forces as well as within U.S. soldiers’ consciences.

Three new videos have been released on the CAPE website that present the experiences of the first three women to graduate ranger school. These Soldiers have some valuable perspectives on gender integration; teamwork; and character, competence, and commitment that may be useful to support what is being taught at schools and in unit professional development programs.

CAPE Annual Survey of the Army Profession (CASAP) FY16 Technical Report

http://cape.army.mil/repository/reports/casap-fy16-technical-report.pdf

The Center for the Army Profession and Ethic Annual Survey of the Army Profession (CASAP FY16) was distributed to a statistically sufficient, random, stratified sample of Army Professionals (PFC - COL and GS 9 -15) in April 2016. Its findings contribute to shared understanding of the State of the Army Profession within the Army Culture of Trust – informing senior Army leaders regarding the effectiveness of policies and practices intended to inspire and motivate Army professionals to “live by and uphold the Army Ethic.” Specifically, CASAP FY16 focused on trust at all levels within the Army Profession and with the American people; the extent of training on Army Profession Doctrine and the FY15/16 America’s Army – Our Profession (AA – OP) theme, “Living the Army Ethic,” Why and How We Serve; and awareness and acceptance of the Sergeant Major of the Army initiative, “Not In My Squad.” Results indicate that Soldiers and Army Civilians embrace their shared identity and express commitment to "live by and uphold the Army Ethic." However, coaching, counseling, mentoring, and trust among components and communities of practice require continued attention and steady improvement. These findings will drive training and education products supporting the FY17/18 AA – OP theme, One Army, Indivisible. Assessment of the State of the Army Profession assists Senor Army leaders in understanding the effects of policies and programs on the Army Culture of Trust and on the development of Trusted Army Professionals. As such, CASAP is a strategically important asset and a recurring proponent responsibility (AR 5-22).
