The 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 "Esprit de Corps" of the Rangers.

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 farther, 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, my neatness of dress
and care for 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.
