My name is Private First Class Ryan A. Littleton and I didnt get my hair cut. I have disrespected the United States Army by forgetting the importance of Military Appearance. It is important to show civilians that I care about them and this country and I will fight for them and protect them. If I look like a slob then I will not be taken seriously by my country and I want to project to the people my promise to them respectfully and I wouldnt be portraying that if I am uniformed. All soldiers are different but we are a team and we have to show that we are fighting for America and wear are uniforms proudly. We will not be able to do that if they are messy and unkempt. Its disrespectful to our country. We should all look like a unit.B
As a volunteer to join the United States Army I promised to follow rules and regulations which I have failed to do so. Which show irresponsibility and immature behavior. The rules were clearly spelled out to me when I enlisted and in basic training about the proper appearance of a soldier. Shown to me by the Army Regulation 670-1. Personal Appearance Regarding Personnel Currently Serving in the United States. AR 670-1 is the ruling of this standard in which every soldier must uphold to. A soldier is measured by his/her ability to do his job successfully, tactfully, and professionally. The key to doing a job as a professional is a professional appearance, none know this as much as the Army. In the Army, the regulation that dictates what to look like while on duty is the AR 670-1; this provides an SOP on what to wear and how to groom for both males and females alike.
