What is the Warrior Ethos Since the beginning of the United States but especially for the last 100 years the ethos of the US military has been oriented toward the requirement to win the nations wars If you randomly survey military personal on what the warrior ethos is you will get many different definitions The Army has a value system based on seven values 1 Loyalty 2 Duty 3 Respect 4 Selfless-Service 5 Honor 6 Integrity and 7 Personal Courage This value system is to build a foundation for a strong code of ethics and ideals for the soldiers to develop a warrior ethos This has become a very lively point of friction between the combat arms and non-combat arms soldiers There have always been very stanch opinions between the combat arms and the other occupational specialties on almost all viewpoints of anything The combat arms believe that the non-combat arms soldiers do not have the proper mindset to know what exactly the warrior ethos is or represents To the combat arms the warrior ethos represents the intestinal fortitude for a soldier to go that extra mile or to do that which is not expected when it needs to be done The combat arms interpretation of the warrior ethos places a great deal of importance on unit cohesion which research has shown to be a critical element in countering friction and achieving success on the battlefield The foundation of cohesion is something at which non-combat arms occupational specialties scoff male bonding--the brotherly love that develops among those who have nothing in common but facing death and misery together This bonding is what makes the combat arms able to do what it does in the face of battle and is what instills the dogmatic warrior ethos that it possess The importance of male bonding and unit cohesion is described in J Glen Grays classic study of combat in World War II The Warriors Reflections on Men
