I am an American Soldier.

I protect what I love.
I am a Warrior and a member of a team.

I am one piece of many.
I serve the people of the United States, and live the Army Values.

I vow to live with honor, courage and respect.

I will always place the mission first.
I will never accept defeat.
I will never quit.
I will never leave a fallen comrade.

I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.

I will know my physical limits and push myself everyday.
I always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself.

I will maintain my defense.
I am an expert and I am a professional.

I am ready to give my life for those around me.
I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy, the enemies of the United States of America in close combat.

I am ready to give my life in debt to my country.
I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.

I will protect this way of life.
I am an American Soldier.
