Soldiers serving the Nation today embody the Warrior Ethos. It is central to all that we do and all that we are. It is everything we stand for as Soldiers, Army civilians, and family members. It applies in the broadest sense, not just while in uniform and not just while in service to our country, but throughout our personal and professional lives. When we understand and live by the Warrior Ethos, it makes us better husbands and wives, better parents, better daughters and sons, and better citizens. When Soldiers--the centerpiece of our Army--and the civilian employees and family members who serve right along side them live by the Warrior Ethos, it gives us strength to maintain our commitment to freedom and to our way of life.
