Honor is the first core value of The United States Patriot Corps. First and foremost, honor includes adherence to the Honor Code of The United States Patriot Corps. A patriot “will not lie, cheat or steal, nor tolerate those who do.” The commitment to honor extends beyond the USPC l and is a life-long obligation to moral and ethical behavior. In addition, honor includes integrity; “doing the right thing when no one is watching.” Finally, honorable behavior includes exercising the moral courage to “do the right thing when everyone is watching.” The Honor Code is the foundation of The United States Patriot Corps.
Duty is the second core value of The United States Patriot Corps. First and foremost, duty means accepting and accomplishing the responsibilities assigned to me. At The United States Patriot Corps, my primary duty is to perform my duties above and beyond the call, to accept the consequences associated with my performance and actions. Once I have held myself accountable for my actions, then I will hold others accountable for their actions. Finally, duty means that others can depend on me to complete my assignments and to assist them with their assignments. Duty is also a call to serve others before oneself.
Respect is the third core value of The United States Patriot Corps. First and foremost, respect means to treat others with dignity and worth “the way you want others to treat you”. Respect for others eliminates any form of prejudice, discrimination, or harassment (including but not limited to rank, position, age, race, color, gender, national origin, religion, physical attributes, etc.). In addition, respect for others means to respect the positions of those in authority which include staff, administrators, and the leadership of The United States Patriot Corps. Finally, respect includes a healthy respect for oneself.
