U.S. Army Cadet Command 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 made the final sacrifice.

I am the PRESENT - the scholar and apprentice soldier enhancing my skills in the science of war and 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.
