Definition/Scope: ( FM 3-21.75) Army values are the basic building blocks that enable us to see what is right or wrong in any situation. They build the warrior ethos and they are mutually dependent—you can't fully follow one while ignoring another. The Army's core values are loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage. They form the acronym LDRSHIP. Fulfilling your obligations as an American soldier is possible by accepting and living these values. These values tell you what you need to be, every day, in every action you take and remind us and the world who we are and what we stand for.
