I am an American, a Soldier, a Veteran.
I served the people of the United States and live the Values I have been taught.
I have answered my Nation's call,
I am her Guardian of freedom, and those freedoms allow me to live as best I can.
I am faithful to a proud heritage.
I have been taught honored traditions which have been passed down from those before me.
I will treat those around me with honor and respect.
I will conduct myself with integrity and professionally in such a way that will not bring disservice unto myself nor my fellow members.
I shall, so far as I am able, bring to others solutions, not problems, but know I can bring a problem and someone else may bring a solution.
If I see someone struggling, I shall be there to aid them.
My fellow members will know that they are not alone, and I will know that I am not alone.
I shall live joyously, but always with due regard for the rights and privileges of others.
I shall endeavor to be a model citizen in the community in which I live.
