  1. Hero of the Month

PROFESSIONALISM

Professions originated out of society’s need for the expert application of specialized knowledge. In order for professions to most effectively provide that expert knowledge, they need autonomy. That autonomy is based on trust; trust between society and the profession, and trust among the members of the profession. This trust is based on shared values, and demonstrated actions in accordance with these values.

PHYSICAL COURAGE

Overcome your own fears to do what the job requires. The ability to control my emotions and my actions, regardless of circumstance, sets me apart from other men.

MORAL COURAGE/INTEGRITY

I will do the right thing even when nobody is looking. Uncompromising integrity is my standard. My character and honor are steadfast. My word is my bond.

HUMILITY

We never stop learning. We are quiet professionals. I do not advertise the nature of my work, nor seek recognition for my actions.

CREATIVITY

We embrace uncertainty and challenge assumptions. We are adaptive problem solvers. We expect innovation.

TEAM ABILITY

We shift easily between leading and following. The Team comes before me. The lives of my teammates and the success of the mission depend on me.
