Ethics cards and such

Most armies in Western countries, I presume, have ethics programs that they try to get down to each individual soldier. It would be an interesting project to compare the process that went into making each of them. The IDF blog recently had a post about their "spirit of the Israel Defense Forces" ethics card, the US Army gives out cards and dog tags with the basic ethics philosophy of the Army. The Canadian Defense force has something similar (see Slide 38 in this powerpoint presentation). Anyone know what other armies do?
