Six by Six: Reports from O'Dark 30
Creed of an Infantry
I am the Infantry.
I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace.
I am the heart of the fight – wherever, whenever.
I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies.
I am the King of Battle.
I am what my country expects me to be – the best trained solder in the world.
In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win.
Never will I fail my country’s trust.
Always I fight on – through the foe, to the objective, to triumph over all.
If necessary, I fight to my death.
By my steadfast courage, I have won 200 years of freedom.
I yield not – to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, for I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight.
I forsake not – my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty.
I am relentless.
I am always there, now and forever.
I AM THE INFANTRY!
