LEAD IN: The Marine Corps is a diverse organization in the USA with an ethnic and racial makeup most reflective of American society. Each individual brings a set of values and attitudes that have been cultivated over many years. Additionally, these values and attitudes are still being shaped and refined with each new experience. Many of you have strong memories about recent events in your lives, such as promotion, schooling, a new baby, or a transfer. These events and ones yet to come, serve to shape your values and attitudes for the future. However, values and attitudes do not automatically change just because someone puts on a Marine Corps uniform. Some values and attitudes, when coupled with a lack of awareness, or insensitivity about others, who are different from ourselves, can produce confrontations, anger, and even violence. It is imperative all members recognize and manage their differences so they do not interfere with the Marine Corps's mission effectiveness or ability to fight and win on the battlefield.

Set of values adopted by an individual or society that influences behavior
3. Value system. A value system is a set of values adopted by an individual or society influencing the behavior of the individual or members of the society, often without the conscious awareness of the members of that society. Through this process we prioritize our judgments. Everyone has a value system. One of the problems people must learn to deal with is when they perceive something that contradicts their own value system, oftentimes it is rejected is as having no importance.
