In the US Army we are taught to live up by the 7 ARmy Values. They are broken down to us in the acronym LDRSHIP. Loyalty "Bear true faith and allegiance to the U.S Constitution, the Army and other soldiers." Duty "Fulfill your obligations." Respect "Treat people as they should be treated." Selfless Service "Put the welfare of the nation, the Army and your subordinates above your own." Honor "Live up to the army values." Integrity "Do what's right legally and morally." and Personal Courage "Face fear, danger or adversity (physical or moral).
All 7 values have an impact on each other, and are integral part of ones moral standing. In my personal opinion, Loyalty means being a person that other’s can count on. That when the time comes, you will be there to do what needs to be done. You will be true and faithful to them no matter the outcome. If that loyalty is not observed by both parties involved however, then that sense of loyalty may eventually change or even fade. Duty to me is accomplishing a task that needs to be done, no matter how much you’d rather be doing something else. Whether you love it or hate it. The task is there to be done. If one does not fulfill their duties on a regular basis, then those around them have to pick up the slack, and any sense of loyalty begins to become tarnished.
Everyone wants to be respected. It’s in our nature, but in order to obtain respect, first of all….one has to respect oneself. Second, one has to show respect to others in order to gain respect from them. If one doesn’t show respect to someone, that person may often feel slighted and
