Recruitment in the U.S. Army
The US Army is like any other business; they are in constant need of new and fresh employees or Soldiers. The US Army for almost ten years now has stretched, bent and broken some of their own recruiting rules in order to keep up with the demands of the wars. Now that the wars are coming to an end, they have started to realize that all the rules that have been stretched, bent and broken really need to be in place. First I will summarize the recruitment of the U.S. Army and then I will discuss what ethical research practices should be avoided in this project. Next I will cover what parties involved in the research could face injury and what injuries could occur. Then I will go over how unethical behavior in this research affects the organization, the individual and society. Lastly I will discuss whether the unethical behavior could be monitored or resolved if it is found to be occurring.
The US Army has very strict rules and regulations when it comes to recruiting and recruitment. One of the research practices that should be avoided is recruitment of unqualified or unfit personnel. When people do not meet the requirements to enlist in the U.S. Army, those personnel should not be authorized to enlist in the U.S. Army. Prime examples of this would be physical or mental conditions that would hinder your ability to perform and function as a U.S. Soldier. The issue that the recruiter has to deal with is the ability to read people and identify if they are telling the truth or not. In some cases the recruit will not inform the recruiter of these issues and thus create a false enlistment for him or herself. In other cases the recruit will inform the recruiter of their said ailments and from this point the recruiter will decided whether they are going to do the right thing or not.
