Abstract : Ethics training in the United States Army is absolutely essential in maintaining a strong and credible fighting force which will propel us into the 21st Century. The out look for soldiers entering the Army from our society in the year 2010 looks very bleak and discouraging. This study examines the ethics training given to officers at all the service schools from the basic course through the senior service level. It provides a critical analysis to see if the current training will achieve the results that we not only want, but need to develop our leaders into the next century. It offers a historical perspective to see what has motivated the Army to initiate ethics training for its officers. It looks at the end state of a current study conducted by the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel and provides some recommendations for improving the current core curricula that will help the Army achieve its goals for Character Development 2001.
