SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING

The Warrior Ethos is a crucial acknowledgement of longstanding Army values, an affirmation of the qualities that make a Soldier great. I didn't just put it out there because we needed something on the poster. There is a lot of power in this, and each of us must embrace and understand it. The Warrior Ethos is not only about being a good Soldier, but a good spouse, parent, friend, and citizen. (Transcript)

Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker
Chief of Staff of the Army

TODAY'S FOCUS

WARRIOR ETHOS

I will always place the mission first.
I will never accept defeat.
I will never quit.
I will never leave a fallen comrade.


In a conflict of daunting complexity and diversity, the Soldier remains our most intelligent, lethal, and adaptable "system".

People remain more important than hardware and quality more important than quantity.

Soldiers will adapt to evolving warfare environments, yet the Warrior Spirit will remain at the core of their commitment to serve a nation at war.

In a dynamic and transforming Army, Soldiers and the values they embody are the irreplaceable foundation of change and guarantors of victory.

The Warrior Ethos is part of the Soldier's Creed. Watch the Soldier's Creed video at www.army.mil/soldierscreed.
