Here’s the Army’s 1949 guide on how to be a well-mannered soldier | Task and Purpose

Must Read

According to the Army, soldiers must be courteous, respectful, and able to get along with others.

What is a soldier’s most crucial skill? Obviously, good manners. At least that is what America believes. Because of this, the Department of the Army developed a guide on good manners and manners for commanders and enlisted soldiers, Personal Conduct for the Soldier, was released in February 1949. All soldiers should already be familiar with good conduct, as stated in the forward by Gen. Omar Bradley, the then-Chief of Staff of the Army, but the pamphlet is supposed to be a helpful review. Additionally, it offers a fascinating glimpse into Army life in the years following World War II. The section on “common sense etiquette” reads, “Our manners convey, in a way, the respect we have for our country, Army, ourselves, family, friends, and for those whom we meet.” The chapter emphasizes the need of remaining loyal to the United States while also respecting other cultures and countries.
