SPECIAL FORCES CREED

 

I am an American Special Forces soldier.  A professional!  I will do all that my nation requires of me.  I am a volunteer, knowing well the hazards of my profession.

 

I serve with the memory of those who have gone before me:  Roger’s Rangers, Francis Marion, Mosby’s Rangers, the First Special Service Forces and Ranger Battalions of World War II, the Airborne Ranger Companies of Korea.  I pledge to uphold the honor and integrity of all I am – in all I do.

 

I am a professional soldier.  I will teach and fight wherever my nation requires.  I will strive always, to excel in every art and artifice of war.  I know that I will be called upon to perform tasks in isolation, far from familiar faces and voices, with the help and guidance of my God.

 

I will keep my mind and body clean, alert and strong, for this is my debt to those who depend upon me.  I will not fail those with whom I serve.  I will not bring shame upon myself or the forces.

 

I will maintain myself, my arms, and my equipment in an immaculate state as befits a Special Forces soldier.  I will never surrender though I be the last.  If I am taken, I pray that I may have the strength to spit upon my enemy.  My goal is to succeed in any mission – and live to succeed again.

 

I am a member of my nation’s chosen soldiery.  God grant that I may not be found wanting, that I will not fail this sacred trust.
