With the roll-out of our new AR 670-1 and its accompanying DA Pam, this is a perfect time to revisit training on standards and discipline. Our Army has always prided itself on military appearance, its uniforms and proper grooming, and these changes support that commitment.

Each of us must ensure we not only know the regulations, but also embrace the underlying reasons for their implementation. By doing so, we can better understand why they play such an important part in our Army Profession.

The Center for the Army Profession and Ethic has established a website with products and resources to support this discussion. Curriculum, videos, posters, information papers and brochures are available for your unit and organization professional development programs at CAPE-dot-ARMY-dot-MIL.

We are America's Army and this is Our Profession.
