In this essay I will describe the many requirements and expectations set forth in the army’s AR670-1. I will describe the importance of obedience to it and cite many of its detailed descriptions. I am writing this essay because I failed to meet the standards asked of me by both these regulations, and my leadership. I accept the responsibility of my actions and will not let my failure recur, nor will I let my fellow soldiers repeat my mistake. Since my failure was in regards to grooming or personal additions to uniform, I thought it would be pertinent to cover these subjects thoroughly.
When a man volunteers for the army he agrees to follow a set of general and specific guidelines set forth by many men before him. These guidelines are expected to be met by every soldier in the military, whether thought to be stupid or mundane, every soldier will meet these standards or punishment will ensue. These rules are important to maintain the army’s tradition of excellence and professionalism. We are the best at what we do, we have discovered a formula which produces greatness, and as such it should be followed. Part of this formula is the uniform code. It is important to repeatedly answer the demands of AR670-1 to build a disciplined soldier, one who attends work every day with the required materials and who acts like an army soldier.
