SWD’s Army Values Program honors seven

7/1/2014
DALLAS--The core values of an organization are those that form the very fabric of an organization, the guiding principles that people use for both job performance and conduct. In the U.S. Army, these are called the Army Values, and they form the acronym LDRSHIP: loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage. Army Values are American values, and soldiers must live these values more intensely and professionally than most others in civilian life because soldiers serve to protect the Nation and the values upon which it was founded. So they learn these values in detail during their basic combat training and live these values everyday in everything they do.
