Cadet Creed

I am an Army Cadet.  Soon I will take an oath and become an Army Officer committed to DEFENDING the values which make this nation great.  HONOR is my touchstone.  I understand MISSION first and PEOPLE always.

I am the PAST – the spirit of those WARRIORS who have made the final sacrifice.

I am the PRESENT – the scholar and apprentice Soldier enhancing my skills in the science of warfare and the art of leadership.

But above all, I am the FUTURE – the future WARRIOR LEADER of the United States Army.   May God give me the compassion and judgment to lead and the gallantry in battle to WIN.

I will do my DUTY.
