The Special Forces Creed
I am an American Special Forces soldier. A professional! I will do
all that my nation requires of me. I am a volunteer, knowing well the hazards of my
I serve with the memory of those who have gone before me: Roger's
Rangers, Francis Marion, Mosby's Rangers, the first Special Service Forces and the Ranger
Battalions of World War II, The Airborne Ranger Companies of Korea. I pledge to
uphold the honor and integrity of all I am - in all I do.
I am a professional soldier. I will teach and fight wherever my nation
requires. I will strive always to excel in every art and artifice of war.
I know that I will be called upon to perform tasks in isolation, far from
familiar faces and voices, with the help and guidance of my God.
I will keep my mind and body clean, alert and strong, for this is my debt to
those who depend upon me.
I will not fail those with whom I serve. I will not bring shame upon
myself or the forces.
I will maintain myself, my arms, and my equipment in an immaculate state as
befits a Special Forces soldier.
I will never surrender through I be the last. If I am taken, I pray that
I may have the strength to spit upon my enemy.
My goal is to succeed in any mission - and live to succeed again.
I am a member of my nation's chosen soldiery. God grant that I may not be
found wanting, that I will not fail in this sacred trust.
