Traditions - as an element of the psychology of the military collective

An important condition for the activity and development of the collective are traditions, military relics and military rituals.

All this, in unity and in the relationship of individual links, forms a complex of socio-psychological phenomena, or the psychology of a military collective. Socio-psychological phenomena, in contrast to mental phenomena, are usually called the processes of communication of people and those interrelated changes in their consciousness, psyche, which are the result of communication. Therefore, the mechanism of formation and functioning of the system of socio-psychological phenomena is the communication of soldiers. Each link in the psychology of a military collective is somehow manifested in communication, influences it and is itself influenced by it.

Tradition is a spiritual value, a conquest, which, being initially the work of one of his generations, then becomes a circumstance that affects the activities of subsequent generations.

At the root of the tradition often lies a specific outstanding event in the life of the collective - a feat in battle, victory in socialist competition, sporting achievements, and success achieved become the pride of the personnel and a kind of benchmark for evaluating subsequent actions. In the consciousness of the collective, social demands and corresponding motivations for action worthy of this example are formed. This creates continuity in the development of the team, accumulates experience and norms that govern the behavior of soldiers. The traditions of each military collective are in organic connection and unity with the military traditions of the Armed Forces.

The systematic repeating and having become accustomed to certain forms of organization and types of activities, life and recreation, organizational and educational activities are becoming traditional.
Collective habits are formed, creating a clear business rhythm in the life of the unit, bringing clarity and certainty to the situation.

Traditions are those that have developed on the basis of long experience of group activity and are firmly rooted in everyday life, transmitted by newly coming to the collective of rules, norms and stereotypes of behavior and actions, everyday communication between people, the observance of which has become a social need.

Traditions can be an element of large communities, as well as specific groups of people, the team. The totality of traditions is an element of the intra-collective moral and psychological atmosphere in which the individual constantly resides and is constantly assimilated.

Traditions are diverse and numerous. They can be conditionally divided according to a number of signs:

a) in content - for combat, military-labor, social, sports;

b) in the areas of manifestation - ideological, moral (moral), legal, artistic, religious;

c) by belonging to different communities of people - nationwide, national, class, territorial, professional, age, intracollective (group), mixed.

In the life of military personnel, the most durable and important common traditions are:

loyalty and devotion to the Fatherland, to its people;

the love of warriors for their unit, its loyalty to the Battle Banner;

military partnership, mutual revenue;

pride in military merit;

dedication in the performance of military duty, mass heroism in battle;

pride in the success of the unit (division), for belonging to the Air Defense Forces.
