I am an American Soldier. 

I am a Warrior and a member of a team.  I serve the people of the United States and live the Army Values. 

I will always place the mission first. 

I will never accept defeat.I will never quit. 

I will never leave a fallen comrade. 

I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.  I always maintain my arms, my equipment, and myself. 

I am an expert and I am a professional. 

I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy the enemies of the United States of America in close combat. 

I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life. 

I am an American Soldier.
