Abstract : The code of Conduct was developed in 1955 as a result of American prisoner of war problems during the Korean War. The first wartime test of the Code was the Vietnam War. This historical analysis reviews the Code's development and specific incidents of its use during the Vietnam War. The paper outlines why the Code was changed after the Vietnam War and then discusses the Code since 1977, specifically the training requirements for military personnel. The paper concludes that the Code of Conduct is a necessary document in the profession of arms, but that training is inadequate.
