Trust Theme Video


(inspirational classical music) – [Narrator] Trust is the
bedrock of the Army profession. The American people place
special trust and confidence in the Army. As a profession that
considers honorable service to the nation its highest priority. Our professional
responsibility is to preserve the trust we’ve earned. Our moral obligation to
uphold the Army ethic is the source of trust
with the American people. The Army’s ability to
accomplish its mission and win in a complex world depends on trust. Among leaders, peers, and subordinates, between soldiers, and Army civilians. In the Army, by Army
professionals, and their families, and between the Army
and the American people. Our relationship with the
American people is built on a foundation of trust,
continuously reinforced as we contribute honorable service, demonstrate military expertise, provide faithful stewardship, and exhibit courageous esprit de corps. Within the Army profession,
mutual trust is necessary to build cohesive teams. – Trust is a solemn promise
between individuals. I’m gonna do everything in my
ability to take care of you and I know that you’re gonna do it for me. Without the element of
trust between individuals in the Army, it would be a
breakdown of our institution as a profession. We have to be able to trust
each other from leader to subordinate, and
subordinate to the leader. All the way down from the
Chief of Staff of the Army to the lowest private. Trust is the foundational
aspect, I call the building block of which everything else is built upon. Without trust, organizations
can’t accomplish their mission. – [Narrator] Trust among
leaders, peers, and subordinates. – We have to have the
mission command philosophy to be able to exercise
discipline initiative in the absence of orders, or in changing, evolving conditions to
where the leader may not be able to talk to the lead,
and that requires trust. And again, it’s a two-way trust. It’s trusting the leaders,
and it’s the leaders trusting the lead. – The whole premises is based on trust. Trusting the subordinate
to do the right thing to accomplish the mission,
follow the commander’s intent. And then for that subordinate
to have trust in that leader that when they do make a decision
that they feel is the best in that situation, that the
commander, or that senior leader is going to underwrite that decision. – To put it very simply,
you are gonna trust me if you know at the end of
the day I’m more concerned about accomplishing the
mission, taking care of you as one of my soldiers,
and making sure that in every day and every way
I’m doing the best I can to play my heart out for the team. That’s how I build trust with you. This is about me being competent, this is about me being proficient, but it’s also fundamentally
about me being selfless. – Trust between leaders and
followers is very important. As a follower I have to
believe that my leaders are going to utilize
me and my subordinates, my peers effectively in order
to accomplish a mission. And at the same time, a leader
has to trust in his or her soldiers to be able to
execute within standard and within a certain window of time. – You have to trust your
peers, you have to trust your superiors, and especially
on the battlefield. You need to know that when
your battle buddy needs to be where they need to be,
and it’s gonna save your life if that person is there. – I need to know that I
can trust those around me, and trust really can
only come through time. Maybe even one moment
in time can let me know that I can trust you because I
called upon you, I needed you and I found out that I can
count and depend on you. – Trust is a very powerful
word, but it means so much. And I think it’s earned best
through our words, our deeds, and our actions. If I can’t say that my
audio is matching my video, I will not gain the trust
of the men and women with whom I serve. – When you’re true to your words and deeds it gains a certain amount of respect. The soldiers want to
be a part of your team because they trust you. – [Narrator] Trust between
soldiers and Army civilians. – Understanding the roles
and responsibilities of each soldier and
civilian, assist both cohorts in seeing where and how they fit as part of the Army institution. I think a big part of this
is that to build trust we must listen. Soldiers and civilians may
have different perspectives, but they have the same
intent in terms of serving the Army honorably and capably. – We take an oath, that oath
is to protect the Constitution of the United States
whether you’re in uniform or a civilian. Civilians and Army soldiers,
they work in concert whether in the battlefield
or in an office environment, they’re there to accomplish that one goal, which is the Army mission. – Trust enables mission command. It gives senior leaders the
confidence to issue orders framed around commander’s
intent, and allows subordinates to use discipline
initiative and prudent risk to achieve outcomes. – With mission command, I’d
tell you, here is my intent, this is why we’re doing it,
and then you run with the ball. You take it, you do it whatever
way you want to get there, and as long as you get to
that intent, that end state, that is what I was expecting,
then that’s mission command. – [Narrator] Trust in the
Army by Army professionals and their families. – I have to have 100% trust
in the Army that they will provide the best training
and equipment available so that my husband can
complete his mission and, God willing, he’ll come home safely. – There’s a trust between
the American soldier and their leaders that
we will do the things that get them prepared
and ready to fight and win on the battlefield and return
home to their families. – My soldier that deploys to
combat has to be focused on a very critical task, fighting and winning our nation’s wars. They can’t be worried
about the basic needs of their family when
they’re gone, and that’s why we spend so much time
ensuring that our families are well taken care
of, because it’s trust. A soldier’s gotta trust
the fact that even though he or she is putting
themselves in harm’s way and sacrificing so much,
the people he cares about, loves, and so close to him in his life are gonna be taken care of. And that’s critically
important to success of both the mission and our family’s
trust in the organization. – [Narrator] Trust between the
Army and the American people. – We must always remember
that we are accountable to the American people. We serve the American
people and we are entrusted with the care of their sons
and daughters in uniform. Trust with the American people is something we can never lose. – I think it’s very
important that we maintain that public trust so that we
assure America’s citizens, parents like myself and
others, that they feel good about entrusting their sons
and daughters to our care. – As it’s related to homeland, and what the Army National Guard
does for emergency response, there must be trust that we
always have our citizens’ best interest at heart,
that’s what they look for their Army to do, the right
thing each and every time. – When we perform our mission
in a matter that upholds the Army ethic, it builds
trust with the American people that we serve them in the right way, protecting our nation’s values. – The public can trust us to
know that when you’re sitting behind a scope, and you’re
looking through there, and somebody’s in your cross
hairs, as much as we may not wanna see it this way,
in that moment in time, you’re judge, jury, and executioner, so I would hope that
the public can trust us and what we do, again, that
we’ve employed the Army ethic, that we’re professionals, that
we’ve built that character and that confidence to
know that in that moment, we’re gonna make the right decision. – [Narrator] In it’s simplest
sense, trust is confidence. External trust is the confidence
that the American people have in the Army profession,
to serve the nation ethically, effectively, and efficiently. Internal trust is
reliance on the character, competence and commitment
of Army professionals to live by, and uphold, the Army ethic. Army leaders at all levels
strengthen the Army culture of trust by establishing
ethical command climates, essential for mission command. – Trust equals confidence. Confidence that you know you’re trained. Confidence that you will perform your duty in a manner consistent with
our shared moral principles and values in the Army ethic. And confidence that you
will persevere under the most difficult conditions. – We build trust between the
components by reinforcing the fact that we’re one Army. Regardless of what component we are, it’s gonna take every single one of us, Guard, Reserve, and Active
Force, to accomplish the missions our nation’s asking
us to do on a daily basis. – We are America’s Army. The trust of our American
citizens in our Army is critical to the success. We represent them to
the rest of the world. In many cases, we are the face of America no matter where we go and what we do. They must trust that we’re
ready to fight and win our nation’s wars. – We’re the most trusted
organization in America. It has not always been that
way, and it’s not a right, and that we will stay that way. We are the people
prepared to sacrifice all for the sake of the American people, and we’ve sworn to do it. And they have to have trust that we will. (intense music)
