"Another war in the Middle East is the last thing we need and, in fact, I believe it would be disastrous on a number of levels. But the military option must be kept on the table given the destabilizing policies of the regime and the risks inherent in a future Iranian nuclear threat - either directly or through proliferation."
-Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates, to cadets at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point

What is it?
The Warrior Ethos is a set of principles by which every Soldier lives. In a broader sense, the Warrior Ethos is a way of life that applies to our personal and professional lives as well. They define who we are and who we aspire to become.
What has the Army done?
The Army has worked to instill the Warrior Ethos in all our Soldiers by the way we train, live and fight. Every Soldier who has entered into the Army Family has been taught that the Warrior Ethos, rooted in Army values, and founded on the premise that service to our nation is an honor and a responsibility that requires self-sacrifice. The very notion of service is founded on the premise that you give more than you get. This ethos has enabled our Soldiers to endure the rigors of combat and distinguish our Army on the battlefield by the character of our service.
