Abstract : Chaplain (LTC) Willard Goldman, a project officer in the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel, initiated a study in 1994 entitled, 'Character Development in the U.S. Army; A Proposal to Change the Future.' He postulated that the Army lacked a systematic and cohesive ethics program. General Dennis J. Reimer, Chief of Staff of the Army, has approved the study. A Task Force designated 'Character Development-2001' (CD-2001) has been formed to investigate and develop an ethics program that will meet the needs of the 21st century. This study supports the task force's mission and examines the ethics training currently being conducted at the US Military Academy and by Cadet Command. It concludes with recommendations on officer selection and on the content and goals of Army ethics courses.
