When someone tells a lie, it is referred to as lying. Why do people deceive each other? There may be a variety of viewpoints, and perhaps even several different reasons for why individuals lie. One thing is certain: the act of deception is considered unethical in our society. Lying is one of the most egregious behaviors that a soldier or anybody else can undertake against the military, particularly if they are telling an NCO a lie.
Lying is also a punishable offense in the army and can result in a soldier being discharged from the army. So why do people still lie?
Lying is considered morally wrong because it goes against what most people believe. moral standards are basic guidelines that show what behavior is right or wrong. Most people learn these standards from their families, friends, religious groups, school and the media. When someone lies, they are going against what is considered morally right and this can cause problems in their relationships and social interactions.
Lying is also punishable in the army because it can damage the trust between soldiers and their leaders. This can lead to a breakdown in communication and order within the army. Lying can also lead to soldiers being discharged from the army if they are caught lying to their superiors.
So, why do people still lie? There may be many different reasons but one thing is for sure, lying is morally wrong and can have consequences in the army.
Lying is defined as “an assertion that is not truthful or complete.” Why do people deceive others? There may be a variety of beliefs and even many different excuses for why individuals lie. It’s true that one thing is right thought, which is that lying is considered ethically wrong in our society. In the United States Military, telling lies to an NCO (non-commissioned officer) is considered one of the most unethical behaviors imaginable, especially if it involves lying to other members of the military.
Lying to an NCO is very disrespectful and shows a lack of moral character. It’s important to always tell the truth to your NCO because they are the ones in charge and responsible for you. Lying to them puts their job and maybe even their life at risk.
The army values are something that all soldiers should live by. One of those Army Values is “Duty, Honor, Country”. Duty is defined as what we owe to our country, honor is what we owe to ourselves, and country is what we owe to our God. When a soldier lies it not only dishonors themselves but also dishonors their country.
So remember, lying is morally wrong and is not something that should be taken lightly. It’s important to always tell the truth, especially to your NCO. Lying is a sign of weakness and shows a lack of moral character.
There is a zero-tolerance policy for liars in the military. Even though lying is ethically wrong, people continue to lie in their everyday lives. As a soldier, one must not succumb to pressure or violate one’s military principles and code of conduct. A soldier is expected to always respond with the truth and nothing but the truth, regardless of the circumstances he has encountered as a soldier.
If a soldier is caught lying to an NCO or officer, the punishments can be very harsh. The first time a soldier is caught lying he will be given a verbal warning and if it continues he will end up getting an Article 15. Some of the punishments in the army for lying are: being demoted in rank, pay being taken away, extra duties, and even getting kicked out of the army.
Lying is looked down upon in the army because it goes against everything that soldiers stand for. It destroys trust, teamwork, and communication within a unit. When someone lies it not only affects them but also those around them. Lying can cause people to get hurt or even killed depending on the severity of the lie.
Army values are: loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage. As a soldier one must uphold these values at all times no matter what the situation is. If a soldier does not uphold these values he is not only dishonoring himself but also his unit, family, friends, and country.
Lying is morally wrong and goes against everything that the army stands for. As a soldier it is important to always be truthful no matter what the situation is. Lying destroys trust, teamwork, and communication within a unit which can cause people to get hurt or even killed.
As I previously stated, you may inadvertently develop a habit of lying into one of your habits in your lifestyle, just like as not smoking and drinking. As a soldier of the United States Army, this is why you must always keep your integrity and promise to always tell the truth. You are respected by society, and other soldiers look up to you and put their faith in you.
Lying is a huge factor that could ruin your life, not just in the Army but also as a person. Tell one lie and it will eventually lead to another. It’s like a domino effect, once you start it then it will be hard to stop. A little white lie can turn into something big that could get you into a lot of trouble. Lying is morally wrong and it goes against the Army values. So always think twice before you say something that isn’t true.”
All of that faith that others have placed in you can be shattered when you tell a lie. You may need to make another falsehood to conceal the first one, and unless you tell the truth or are discovered right away, it might continue until you do. It may not be as simple as other addictions to break free from, and it might not be beneficial for yourself or others around you, much like the previous habits.
Lying is something that most people would deem as morally wrong. It is an act that breaks trust and can cause a lot of pain and heartache, not just for the person who was lied to, but also for the liar him or herself. Once a lie is told, it can be hard to take back and the damage done might be impossible to fix.
For example, let’s say you are in the army and you are deployed to fight in a war. You have a family at home that you love and you are fighting for your country. You see some of your friends die in battle and others get severely injured. One day, during a battle, you see one of your fellow soldiers getting shot at and about to be killed. You have a split second to make a decision and you decide to save him by jumping in the way and taking the bullet for him. You are both saved and he is able to go home to his family. However, you are now paralyzed from the waist down and will never be able to walk again.
