Military Makes Ethics a Priority

“The U.S. military is intensifying its focus on ethics training in the wake of a series of investigations of military brass,” the Wall Street Journal reports.  

“Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that as part of this new emphasis, the military needs to place more importance on officers’ character when weighing promotions… The military has been rocked in recent months by a wide-ranging Navy contracting scandal, involving allegations of bribes, as well as by high-profile sexual assault cases and other probes.”  

Said Dempsey: “The Joint Chiefs and I are concerned and committed to ensuring that our military leaders of all ranks uphold the trust that we’ve established with the American people. This has my full attention.”
