What is the assessment’s purpose?
To demonstrate my ability as an organizational level leader to evaluate and internalize the ethical concepts presented and explain how they integrate into the professional military ethic.
What must I do? What is the assignment/question?
Compose my personal moral philosophy from an organizational perspective drawing from the ethical concepts presented.   As an Army Officer and a Soldier I have done my best to internalize the army ethics, talk the talk and walk the walk, to do what is correct even when no one is looking.   The question is who gets to decide what correct looks like? Who gets to set the standards? Am I less of an ethically sound Soldier if I choose to walk from my car to my house without my cover on? Or if I allow toxic leadership in my formations because I don’t have the fortitude to speak up? My opinion is one that is rooted in my belief in God. I was raised in a Catholic home. I am not sure of other religions or other forms of Christianity, but I can speak on the values that have been a part of my life as far back as I can remember.   I believe in one God and that he sent his only son for the forgiveness of our sins. I believe and I choose to follow the Ten Commandments and the bible. Not without fault mind you, but, I do the best I can, learn from my mistakes and ask for forgiveness.   I do not want to solely center my paper and “moral philosophy” on religion, however, I believe this is where my foundation was set in order to make me who I am, and what ethics I believe in today.
