Army [Seal and Soldier's Creed]
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.

Marine Corps [Seal and] Rifleman's Creed
This is my rifle.
There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My rifle is my best friend. It is my life.
I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my rifle is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless.
I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter
than
my enemy who is trying to kill me.
I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will.
My rifle and I know that what counts in war
is not the rounds we fire,
the noise of our burst, nor the smoke we make.
We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit.
My rifle is human, even as I, because it is my life.
Thus, I will learn it as a brother.
I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts,
its accessories, its sights and its barrel.
I will keep my rifle clean and ready,
even as I am clean and ready.
We will become part of each other. We will.
Before God I swear this creed.
My rifle and I are the defenders of my country.
We are the masters of our enemy.
We are the saviors of my life.
So be it, until victory is America's
and there is no enemy, but peace!
————————————————————————————————
Navy [Seal and Sailor's Creed]
I am a United States Sailor.
I will support and defend the Constitution
of the United States of America,
and I will obey the orders
of those appointed over me.
I represent the fighting spirit of the Navy
and those who have gone before me
to defend
freedom and democracy around the world.
I proudly serve my country's
Navy combat team with
Honor, Courage, and Commitment.
I am committed to excellence
and the fair treatment of all.
————————————————————————————————
Air Force [Seal and Airman's Creed]
I am an American Airman.
I am a warrior. I have answered my nation's call.
I am an American Airman.
My mission is to fly, fight, and win.
I am faithful to a proud heritage,
A tradition of honor, And a legacy of valor.
I am an American Airman, Guardian of freedom and justice,
My nation's sword and shield,
It's sentry and avenger.
I defend my country with my life.
I am an American Airman: Wingman, Leader, Warrior.
I will never leave an airman behind, I will never falter,
And I will not fail
————————————————————————————————
Coast Guard [Seal and Coast Guardsman's Creed]
I am proud to be a
United States Coast Guardsman.
I
revere that long line of expert seamen
who by their devotion to duty and sacrifice of self
have made it possible for me to be a member
of a service honored and respected,
in peace and in war, throughout the world.
I never, by work or deed, will bring reproach
upon the fair name of my service,
nor permit others to do so unchallenged.
I will cheerfully and willingly obey all lawful orders.
I will always be on time to relieve, and shall endeavor
to do more, rather than less, than my share.
I will always be at my station,
alert and attending to my duties.
I shall, so far as I am able,
bring to my seniors solutions, not problems.
I shall live joyously, but always with due regard for
the rights and privileges of others.
I shall endeavor to be a model citizen
in the community in which I live.
I shall sell life dearly to an enemy of my country,
but give it freely to rescue those in peril.
With God's help,
I shall endeavor to be one of His noblest Works...
