Rules and regulations are a crucial, defining aspect of the military culture. They provide the tools and skills needed for meeting the unique challenges faced by the military and its service members. This chapter gives broad examples of rules, regulations, and customs and courtesies, and it highlight how they may serve not only the surface function of mission accomplishment but also the underlying purpose of reinforcing military culture and warrior ethos. In addition, this chapter highlights rules and regulations that specifically affect mental health providers and/or may impact clinical care. Links to official US Department of Defense and services websites are provided to allow the reader to access additional regulations and keep up-to-date on guidance that may affect or routinely come up in their practice with service members.
