INFANTRYMAN’S CREED

 

Infantryman’s Creed

I am the Infantry.
I am my country’s strength in war.
Her deterrent in peace.
I am the heart of the fight…
  wherever, whenever.
I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies.
I am the Queen of Battle.
I am what my country expects me to be…
  the best trained soldier in the world.
In the race for victory I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win.
Never will I betray my country’s trust.
Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph over all,
If necessary, I will fight to my death.

By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom.
I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, for I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight.
I forsake not…my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty.
I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever.
I AM THE INFANTRY!
