Purpose: Presentation of the social responsibility of the organization from the perspective of the military as the organization's commitment to protect and strengthen society by building an appropriate strategy that fosters social interests and environmental protection. Approach/Methodology/Design: Undertaking an attempt to answer the question whether solutions in the field of social responsibility in business organizations are reflected in a specific public organization, such as the armed forces? Findings: The key to achieving the adopted goal of the work was also to present the contemporary functions and tasks of the Polish Armed Forces. The main research problem was specified in the form of a question: What is the essence of the social responsibility of the armed forces, perceived from the perspective of their functions and potential tasks? Practical Implications: The basic value determining the meaning of the establishment and functioning of the armed forces, and thus the military service of the motherland. Value results from the inalienable right of every nation to defend its independence, territorial integrity, freedom, and the basis of its existence. It should be assumed that in a situation where there is a threat, the maintenance of the armed forces is socially justified. At the same time, there is no doubt that the armed forces cannot be alienated from society, serving only to maintain political power by the rulers. We deal with situations of this type in totalitarian regimes, where the armed forces are an important factor in keeping society under control. Originality/Value: The declaration of originality of the subject matter is the analysis of the organization from the perspective of social responsibility and its wide research scope.
