Ranger Creed

 

Recognizing that I volunteered as a Ranger, fully

knowing the hazards of my chosen profession, I will

 always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high

 "esprit de corps" of my Ranger Regiment.

 

Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite

 soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land,

 sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country

 expects me to move further, faster and fight harder than

 any other soldier.

 

Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep

 myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally

 straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the

 task whatever it may be. One hundred percent and then some.

 

Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially

 selected and well trained Soldier. My courtesy to

 superior officers, neatness of dress and care of

 equipment shall set the example for others to follow.

 

Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I

 shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better

 trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not

 a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to

 fall into the hands of the enemy and under no

 circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.

 

Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to

 fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the

 mission, though I be the lone survivor.
