Cadet creed
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 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.
