On this day I was instructed by my platoon sergeant to take care of my gate 2. 0 before oiling out with my section to conduct crew drills that morning at 0930. I did as I was told; I went to my room showered got dressed, went and had breakfast, then came back to my room. I was not instructed on where to take care of the gate; just to do it. My laptop was messing up and would not pull up the correct website properly so I called my fellow battle and ask him what time was the stone education center open on main post. He said it should’ve been open.
So then I get over to the stone education center on main post. I resumed the task at hand at the computer lab there where I called on SST Boone to ask him where I would find the gate at because I didn’t know where to find it. He then gave me guidance on where the gate was located and I proceeded with the 100 questions. During taking this gate my computer messed up multiple times. I finally finished around 1020 and which my noncommissioned officer called and asked how long was going to be and I said that had just finished.
After leaving there I then proceeded to the medical aid station to get my vision done at 1 1 00 which arrived before then by 15 miss. After leaving the aid station I proceeded to the area where my section was conducting training and crew certifications. After arriving there I explained to my leaders my story and etc. The next day I come to find out that I am being counseled on these actions in which I have failed my leaders. The essay was given with the details on what to type it on. And had till Monday to complete the task at hand.
The date of Monday being March the 30th. Loyalty is one of the 7 army values in which it this means to bear true and allegiance to the United States Constitution, the Army, your unit and other Soldiers. Bearing the truth faith and devoting yourself to something or omen. The way I violated this army value was by not bearing the true purpose and meaning to my section and leadership. I didn’t do my part as a team member. This concludes the army value loyalty in which did not value at the moment. The next army value that I violated was duty.
Duty means more than carrying out your assigned tasks. Duty means being able to accomplish tasks as part of a team. The work of the U. S. Army is a complex combination of missions, tasks and responsibilities -? all in constant motion. Our work entails building one assignment onto another. You fulfill your obligations as a part of your unit every time you resist the temptation to take “shortcuts” that might undermine the integrity of the final product. I violated this army value by not performing the task that was given as part of the team and being responsible for my actions.
The third of the army value that I violated is respect. Which means treat people as they should be treated. In the Soldier’s Code, we pledge to “treat others with dignity and respect while expecting others to do the same. ” Respect is what allows us to appreciate the best in other people. Respect is rusting that all people have done their jobs and fulfilled their duty. And self- respect is a vital ingredient with the Army value of respect, which results from knowing you have put forth your best effort. The Army is one team and each of us has something to contribute.
With that being said I violated this army value by not fulfilling my duty as a soldier and as a err. Also by not recognizing my worth to the 37 section for certifications and the valuable asset I played in these certifications. Not putting forth my best effort and managing my time to complete a task more wisely. The next of the army values that violated is selfless service. Selfless service means to put the welfare Of the nation, the Army and your subordinates before your own. Selfless service is larger than just one person.
In serving your country, you are doing your duty loyally without thought of recognition or gain. The basic building block of selfless service is the commitment of each team member to go a little further, endure a little longer, and look a little closer to see how he or she can add to the effort. I didn’t value this army value in which I violated because I didn’t show that my commitment as a team ember. By not doing the task that were handed down to me in a timely matter. My effort could have been better in the time firm that I was given and seeing the bigger picture of the subject matter at hand.
Honor is the next army value which holds a good bit of meaning. For which one is very much honored to have for one self and others. Being able to serve your country is truly as honor at that and to do what 1% of the nation could not. Honor means live up to Army values. The nation’s highest military award is The Medal of Honor. This award goes to Soldiers who make honor a matter f daily living -? Soldiers who develop the habit of being honorable, and solidify that habit with every value choice they make.
Honor is a matter of carrying out, acting, and living the values of respect, duty, loyalty, selfless service, integrity and personal courage in everything you do. Honor ties into a great deal of the 7 army values. Honor and courage is what this great nation was built on along with blood sweat and tears of the soldiers and the families of them during the wars and hardship of the United States. Without honor you have nothing and will not value the purpose of your duty to the army. Integrity is the next army value. Integrity is doing what’s right, legally and morally.
Integrity is a quality you develop by adhering to moral principles. It requires that you do and say nothing that deceives others. As your integrity grows, so does the trust others place in you. The more choices you make based on integrity, the more this highly prized value will affect your relationships with family and friends, and, finally, the fundamental acceptance of yourself. Integrity is also a key army value one soldier in the military should want to have. Having integrity is what many of our four ethers had during the foundation building during the building of the United States of America.
Many of the leaders stood up for what is right and for what was best for the country. I violated this rule as a soldier by not realizing the effect of me not completing the task at hand on time. The last yet final of the army values is personal courage. In which having personal courage is a big deal because it can keep you and one safe of doing the right things. Many of the events as far as Daniel in the bible who had personal courage when he stood up against the king and was torn in the lion den but didn’t deny his lord. And had faith.
