Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to explore the changes in the Army ethic and individual soldier values since General Rodgers instituted The Army, Field Manual 100-1, in 1978. A survey of the USAWC Class of 1996, was conducted to determine senior officer perceptions of the Army's current ethical climate, the Army ethic, how to instill the Army ethic in subordinates, and what the Army needs to do to ensure soldiers understand the Army ethic and individual soldier values. The paper concludes that senior officers understand what is important when instilling ethics in subordinates; and the Army has confused the field with respect to what the Army ethic and individual values are because of the many changes during the past eighteen years.
