Army’s cultural and ethical foundation is its values and the bonds of trust and respect between each and every person who joins in service to our nation.
These core values form the bedrock of everything we do:
- Courage, moral and physical, to act in the best interests of the nation and the Army; including the moral strength and professionalism to balance the will to win with compassion, and mateship with duty.
- Initiative to explore opportunities and embrace innovation to improve Army and our service to our nation.
- Respect for ourselves, our colleagues, our community and our history of service to the nation; acknowledging that each one of us has earned the right to wear the Rising Sun badge and the responsibility to uphold the values and traditions it symbolises.
- Teamwork to support each other, our Australian community, our allies and our regional security partners in striving to achieve our mission; in a world connected by digital communication, such national and international ‘communities’ exist in both physical and online domains.
