I will assist each individual

defeating any enemy on today's modern battlefield.

I will instill pride in all I train.
Pride in self, in the Army, and in Country.

consistent with the highest traditions of the U.S. Army.

I will lead by example, never requiring a soldier to attempt any task I would not do myself.

against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.
