SMA Dailey On-line Conduct Message

Hello, I’m Sergeant Major of the Army Dan Dailey.

As Soldiers, it is our solemn duty to conduct ourselves in an appropriate and professional manner in everything we do …. And at all times.

Whether, we are on or off duty, talking to our friends or on our computers at home, we are soldiers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

As Soldiers, our job is to live by the Army values.

This is not a new standard, but it is something that I feel a few of us may have forgotten. Such conduct is unacceptable and is a detriment to unit cohesion and readiness.

Our professionalism directly impacts the perception of our force and our ability to retain and recruit. More importantly, it effects the trust. The trust we have with the American people. And this is something I am not willing to risk.

The actions of a few will not be the face of our army. I challenge each and every Soldier, family member, and Army civilian to do the right thing at all times.

Conduct yourselves professionally in all forums and facets of life. Lead by example in everything you do.

If you are a victim of misconduct, please inform your chain of command and contact your local sharp representative and victim advocate.

If you have knowledge of misconduct, do your job as a Soldier. Report it.

Not in my squad.
Not in my Army.
Army strong!
