Absolute integrity of an officer

I want to make it clear beyond any question that absolute integrity of an officer's word, deed and signature is a matter that permits no compromise.  Inevitably, in the turmoil of the times, every officer will be confronted by situations which test his character.  On these occasions he must stand on his principles, for those are the crucial episodes tat determine the worth of a man.

On a practical level, there are two vitals steps to ethical behavior:  
  • knowing what is right 
  • doing it.
