U.S. Army Rangers:

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 high "espirit 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 commrades. 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 surviver.
