Use Behaviours to Format Date Fields

We currently have a project that is using several date fields and we have a corresponding Script Field for each one to display it in a MM/DD/YYYY format.  Could we accomplish this using a single Behaviour Rule?  We're not really interested in storing the format, just displaying it.  Also, the format would need to be retained if an export/email was done.

You should format the date needed using Java Simple Date Format. I have an example of how this can be done in the following answer:

I hope this helps.
