When I was in the Marines, one trait that was pounded into our “brain housing groups” was the virtue of integrity.

Integrity…honesty…truthfulness…trustworthiness; these are essential especially in combat situations because lives are on the line, and so these virtues were insisted upon also in training and daily life.
