1. Berghaus, Paul T. Developing Virtuous Soldiers: Mitigating the Problem of Fragmentation in the Army.

Degree: MA, Philosophy, 2013, Texas A&M University

Fragmentation, which often involves the division of one’s self into professional and personal domains that are insulated from each other, is a serious problem for soldiers in today’s Army. This type of professional-personal fragmentation arises organically in military service. Unfortunately, it also seems that the past 12 years of persistent conflict have exacerbated the problem of fragmentation for many soldiers. Given this, I argue that any program that the Army implements for moral development should recognize fragmentation and provide resources and practices to combat it. I contend that the Army Profession campaign, which is the Army’s primary program for moral development, fails to meet either of these requirements. Moreover, it seems to serve as a catalyst that further fragments soldier’s lives. I believe this follows from the manner in which the campaign limits moral aspiration to a domain-specific good, professionalism. Thus it seems that the Army Profession campaign is not sufficient for soldiers’ moral development. Some may point to the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness program as the resource that the Army uses to address this problem because of its emphasis on the emotional, social, familial, and spiritual domains of soldiers. I argue, however, that neither the Army Profession campaign nor the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness program construes these domains as constitutive of moral development. Furthermore, both programs rely on experts to train soldiers in their respective concepts. This is problematic because soldiers do not find these experts to be credible. I go on to claim that leaders and peers who have a relationship with their fellow soldiers, and have earned their trust and respect, should function as the center of gravity for character development in the Army. Unfortunately, many leaders and soldiers lack the resources to do so. Thus, they often refer fellow soldiers back to the experts. Instead, leaders and peers should use the resources that virtue ethics provides with respect to self-perception, virtue-relevant goals, and the emotions to promote soldiers’ moral development. Toward that end, chaplains are well-suited to help leaders and peers gather the resources and develop the practices that will contribute to these aims.

2. Prisevičienė, Vilma. Karių socialinės garantijos Lietuvoje.

Degree: Master, Law, 2009, Mykolas Romeris University

Buvo išanalizuotos karių socialinės garantijos ir palygintos su valstybės tarnautojų, darbuotojų, dirbančių pagal darbo sutartį bei kai kurių NATO šalių kariams teikiamomis socialinėmis garantijomis. Siekta išsiaiškinti, ar kariams teikiamos socialinės garantijos kompensuoja neigiamus karo tarnybos aspektus, mažina karių kaitą, didina motyvaciją tarnauti karo tarnyboje. Buvo atliktas Pareigūnų ir karių, išleidžiamų į pensiją, socialinio prisitaikymo, medicininės reabilitacijos bei profesinio orientavimo į kitas veiklos sritis programos – vienos iš į atsargą išėjusių kariams teikiamų socialinių garantijų –– empirinis tyrimas.

Social insurances were analyzed and compared with those provided for state workers, contract workers, and social insurances provided for soldiers by other NATO countries. The investigation was aimed to discover whether the social insurances available countervail negative aspects of military service, reduce turnover of soldiers, and increase motivation to join and stay in military service. Empirical research of the programs of social adaption of retired officers and privates, medical rehabilitation, and professional re-orientation as one of the social insurances for retired military, has been conducted.

3. Carlson, Alfred. Tillit från soldat till officer : En förutsättning för att lyckas i ett yrkesförsvar.

Degree: Swedish Defence University, 2012, Swedish Defence University

Försvarsmakten som organisation är inne i en spännande fas där den är i full fart med att ställas om till ett yrkesförsvar, med anställda soldater. I en nyutkommen studie från Försvarshögskolan observeras en problematik i samspelet mellan officerare och soldater i den nya organisationen. Ett begrepp som används flitigt inom den militära professionen är tillit, vilket blir utgångspunkten i arbetet för att analysera problematiken från studien. Syftet med arbetet är att kartlägga om det finns förutsättningar för att skapa tillit från soldaten till officeren i dagens svenska yrkesförsvar. I arbetet sammanfattas fyra situationer i studien för att skapa en övergripande bild av problematiken. Vidare analyseras studien utifrån de faktorer som skapar tillit enligt teorier från den svenska och den kanadensiska försvarshögskolorna. Analysen struktureras upp utifrån de faktorer som skapar tillit ur den svenska teorin, faktorerna från den kanadensiska teorin förstärker och för analysarbetet vidare. Ur det tillitsperspektiv som används i arbetet visar resultatet på att skapandet av tillit hämmas inom alla faktorer enligt den svenska teorin. De förutsättningar som hämmar är: en oklar syn på hur officeren skall behandla soldaters erfarenhet, plutonchefens allt mer administrativa tjänst samt personalomsättningar. En slutsats är om dessa förutsättningar ändras, ges bättre möjligheter att skapa tillit.

The Swedish Armed Forces as an organization are undergoing an exciting phase where the conversion to a professional military, with employed soldiers, is in full swing. In a recent study the Swedish National Defence College observed a problem in the interaction between officers and soldiers in the new organization. A term that is widely used in the military profession is trust, which forms the starting point in this paper to analyze the problem from the study. The purpose of this paper is to identify whether there are preconditions for building trust from the soldier to the officer in today’s Swedish professional military. In the paper the aforementioned study is summarized into four situations to provide a comprehensive overview of the problem. The study is analyzed out of the factors that create trust according to the theories from the Swedish and Canadian defence colleges. The analysis is structured by the factors from Swedish theory, while the factors from Canadian theory reinforce and develop the analysis further. From the trust perspective used in this paper, the result shows that the creation of trust is impeded in all factors of the Swedish theory. The conditions that inhibit trust are: an imperfect view of how the officer deals with soldier’s experience, the platoon commander’s increased administrative services and personnel turnovers. One conclusion is that if these preconditions are changed, there will be better opportunities to build trust.
