Army Values
Pfc Jorden Green E Tab 139th Fa August 2, 2013 LOYALTY

Loyalty to me is being faithful and being trustworthy to yourself, your family, and your team. 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.” We are all drilled on these 7 army values from the very first day of basic training and throughout our Army career. First we commit them to memory, then we learn to live by them in every aspect of our life, personally and professionally. I define loyalty as the willingness of a person to sacrifice at their own personal expense in order to protect, uphold, defend and edify those persons, ideals and or things which they cherish most. The amount of loyalty that a person feels towards someone or something determines how much they are willing to sacrifice for them. As in the loyalty I have towards my wife and children. The missed holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, first days of school and all the other family events that we miss that will be worthwhile in the end no matter how bleak the outcome may look in the present is what allows the America we know today to continue to grow and prosper as our ancestors hoped. As a Soldier, we are called upon to

    I define loyalty as the willingness of a person to sacrifice at their own personal expense in order to protect, uphold, defend and edify those persons, ideals and/or things which they cherish most. The amount of loyalty a person feels towards someone or something determines how much they are willing to sacrifice for them. As a soldier, we are called upon to sacrifice every aspect of our lives - the physical, the mental, the emotional and the spiritual - in order to protect, uphold, defend and edify the U.S. constitution, the Army, our fellow soldiers and the nation and heritage (all those things about America that we have fought and died to achieve as a country; our structure of government, our laws and our freedoms, our prosperity) of our homeland. Our sacrifices demonstrate our loyalty and it is our loyalty that allows the America we know today to continue to grow and prosper as our ancestors hoped. It is worth noting that loyalty, as a rule, does not take into consideration the small, every-day irritants and disagreements that we encounter with the persons and things to which we are loyal; if it did, it would no longer require self-sacrifice but would instead be a matter of business exchange, or more appropriately, mercenary enterprise. This is why the Army definition of loyalty uses the phrase, "true faith"; to have faith means to believe even when the evidence and facts are in disagreement with the desired outcome of one's hopes and action(s). Loyalty means to believe that our personal sacrifices will be worthwhile in the end no matter how bleak the outcome may look in the present.…

    Loyalty is a word that consists of trust, faith, allegiance, and love. Without those four terms loyalty doesn’t exists. The quality of being loyal all depends on the people that may think of these terms. Imagine two couples that have undeniable trust for each other with stipulations which are to be loyal forever, one runs off to meet another individual she might have attractions for, the other partner finds out about it so the partner feels like she is not being loyal. The reason for that is because he feels like she is only supposed to be attracted to him, but she feels differently because she feels that she hasn’t cheated on him. These are two couples with two different definitions pertaining to…

    Loyalty is like a shadow it’s something that’s with you all of the time, but sometimes it’s hidden.

    Loyalty is defined as a strong feeling of support or allegiance. I agree fully with this definition. Being loyal is one of the most important of the Army values. Being loyal is sticking up for someone or something even though it isn’t the normal vernacular or behavior of society or even your social circle.

    “I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God." With these well-known words, recruits around the United States are sworn into the military every week. Their families gather at the Military Entry Processing Station with excitement to watch them take that first step into our great profession. Little do they know, loyalty will be the key for success in their career. Often, loyalty makes us think of scenes in movies where characters show courage and love for those involved in their lives. In the military, loyalty is more complex than this. It can be both positive and negative and it is something recruits must display to themselves and their fellow comrades.…
