Integrity is essential. It's the inner voice, the source for self-control and the basis for the trust that is imperative in today's military. It's doing the right thing when nobody's looking.
Service Before Self
Military service isn't just another job. It's an uncommon profession that calls for people of uncommon dedication. A leader unwilling to sacrifice individual goals for the good of the unit cannot convince other unit members to do so.
Excellence in All We Do
Our mission often involves the risk of human life and sometimes, national survival. This obligation to excel is a moral obligation for the members of a professional military force.
