 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, Its 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.
 

The Soldiers Creed - Army

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

 I will always place the mission first.

 I will never accept defeat.

The Soldiers Creed - Coast Guard

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...

 A UNITED STATES COAST GUARDSMAN.
 

The Soldiers Creed - Marines

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.

 My rifle, without me, 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 myself know that what counts in this war is not the rounds
 we fire, the noise of our burst, or 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 strength, 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 myself 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!
 

The Soldiers Creed - Navy

 "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."
