  1. Define Honor
    • “I will bear true faith and
    • allegiance...”

    Accordingly, we will:

    • Conduct ourselves in the highest
    • ethical manner in all relationships with seniors, peers, and subordinates;

    • Be honest and truthful in our
    • dealings with each other, and with those outside the Navy;

    • Be willing to make honest
    • recommendations and to accept those recommendations from junior personnel;

    • Encourage new ideas and
    • deliver the bad news, even when it is unpopular;

    • Abide by an uncompromising
    • code of integrity, taking responsibility for our actions and keeping our word;

    • Fulfill or exceed our legal
    • and ethical responsibilities in our public and personal lives 24 hours a day.
    • Illegal or improper behavior or even the appearance of such behavior will not
    • be tolerated. We are accountable for our professional and personal behavior. We
    • will be mindful of the privilege we have to serve our fellow Americans.
  2. Define Courage
    • “I will support and defend...”
    • Accordingly, we will:

    • Have courage to meet the
    • demands of our profession and the mission when it is hazardous, demanding, or otherwise
    • difficult;

    • Make decisions in the best
    • interest of the Navy and the nation without regard to personal consequences;

    • Meet these challenges while
    • adhering to a higher standard of personal conduct and decency;

    • Be loyal to our nation by
    • ensuring the resources entrusted to us are used in an honest, careful, and efficient
    • way. Courage is the value that gives us the moral and mental strength to do
    • what is right even in the face of personal or professional adversity.
  3. Define Commitment
    • “I will obey the orders...”
    • Accordingly, we will:

    • Demand respect up and down the

    • Care for the safety,
    • professional, personal, and spiritual well-being of our people;

    • without regard to race, religion, or gender;

    • human dignity;

    • Be committed to positive
    • change and constant improvement;

    • Exhibit the highest degree of
    • moral character, technical excellence, quality, and competence in what we have
    • been trained to do. The day-to-day duty of every Navy man and woman is to work
    • together as a team to improve the quality of our work, our people and
    • ourselves. Your decision to become part of a proud organization with a rich,
    • time-honored tradition is one of the most important you will ever make. You’ll
    • be a member of a team that functions only as well as its people perform their
    • duties and work toward common goals.
