One Army, Indivisible

"One Army, Indivisible" is the America's Army - Our Profession (AAOP) biennial theme for fiscal year 2017-2018. Our Total Army is comprised of three interdependent, mutually supporting components: the regular Army, the Army National Guard, and the Army Reserve, plus the Army Civilian Corps that supports all three. The Army's fundamental mission to win in the unforgiving crucible of ground combat requires the combined effort of the entire team to be ready today and prepared for tomorrow.

There’s nothing illegal about it. The broader question is — should they?

STAND-TO! Army Civilian Profession Training

The Army Civilian Corps is a major component of the Army Profession and plays an integral role in accomplishing the Army's statutory missions. Individual readiness of both Soldiers and Army Civilians is the foundation of Army readiness.

The Center for the Army Profession and Ethic (CAPE) at the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command has added a training support package for the Army Civilian Corps to its collection of training products. These training products support America's Army - Our Profession, a professional development program that strengthens the Army Profession.

Army Civilians – Members of the Army Profession

Retired Army Col. Kim Summers has written an article for Military Review entitled "The Army Civilian Corps Professionals in the Making" in which Summers argues that "... in order to integrate the Army Civilians Corps as full-fledged members of the Army Profession, it is essential to certify those that meet the criteria."

What's the most important attribute a young leader should seek out that will help him or her succeed in the future and win in an increasingly complex world? a cadet asked.

"Being leaders of character," Vice Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. Daniel B. Allyn responded.

Growing Army Professionals: Closing the Values Gap

The author contends that new soldiers have difficulty identifying with the seven Army Values that are the foundation of the Army profession, and he describes a values-based training concept his unit implemented to bridge this gap.

Please join the Center for the Army Profession and Ethic (CAPE) in congratulating our enlisted advisor, Sgt. Maj. Dave Stewart, upon his retirement after 30 years of exceptionally meritorious service and in wishing him well in his future endeavors.

Sgt. Maj. Stewart pursued his duties with passion, intelligence, and commitment, and has consistently extended influence beyond the chain of command that has positively impacted the entire U.S. Army. Sgt. Maj. Stewart's fingerprints are all over the Army Profession!

To recap just a few of his contributions, Sgt. Maj. Stewart was instrumental in: creating the original Army Doctrinal Reference Publication (ADRP) 1 – The Army Profession, and its subsequent revision, including an articulation of the Army Ethic in 2015; organizing and facilitating the Not In My Squad (NIMS) Initiative on behalf of the Sergeant Major of the Army (SMA); helping articulate the Army's concept for character development; facilitating the SMA's professional development program at the Association of the U.S. Army conference for four consecutive years; facilitating more than 50 Army Profession Seminars in which he personally trained more than 35,000 Soldiers and Army Civilians; helping create and execute the FY 15 and FY 16 CAPE Annual Survey of the Army Profession, and helping create and execute three consecutive Army-wide America's Army ‒ Our Profession educational themes and programs. As if that weren't enough, he also extended his influence throughout the Department of Defense in his role as the enlisted advisor to Rear Adm. Margaret Klein, the Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Defense for Military Professionalism.

It is truly a bittersweet day for CAPE and the Army as we bid farewell to this phenomenal Soldier for Life. He will be sorely missed by his friends and co-workers, but we wish Sgt. Maj. Stewart and his family much happiness and success in this next phase of his life.

If You're Off Course, How Does One Right the Ship?

“The Profession of Arms is decaying (weakening or fraying — as opposed to a relative decline), and the primary causes are neglect, anti-intellectual bias, and a creeping, cancerous bureaucracy.” This the line used by an Army Major as the opening to his Foreign Policy piece calling into question the military as a profession. In recent years we’ve seen arguments that illustrate neglect in the form of gross lying, anti-intellectualism in the form of failed foreign policy and bureaucracy as the baseline for mismanaged talent. I refuse to think we have to abandon ship at this point, however.

This week's post revisits some of the theory behind leadership with respect to the Army as a profession. Some may look at the military as an occupation, but the path required to attain and retain membership to the services, the special capability it provides, and overall development of it's ...

Have you heard about Sgt. Maj. of the Army Daniel A. Dailey’s book club? Dailey said he wanted to “…start a new initiative that's fun, while also helping our squad leaders guide discussions on topics that relate to our profession."

The club’s first book is Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game," a science-fiction novel that focuses on futuristic military space conflict; that discussion runs from July through October.

Next up, beginning in November, will be Simon Sinek’s “Leaders Eat Last,” followed by Sinek’s “Start with Why.”

You can find more information about the SMA’s book club and the reading list, plus the discussion guide for "Ender's Game" on the CAPE website: http://cape.army.mil/library/sma-book-club/

TRADOC town hall's success spurs promise of more

The first-ever “State of NCO Development Town Hall” went so well that the senior enlisted soldier for Training and Doctrine Command plans to host three more such meetings to answer questions from the force.

The final town hall, being planned now, will likely be in November or December and cover the Army Profession.
