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 fail my country’s trust.

Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall.

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! FOLLOW ME!
