Soldier's Creed

What is it?
The Soldier's Creed is the backbone of Warrior Ethos and represents what every Soldier in the Army should be. The Soldier's Creed and Warrior Ethos were adopted by the Army in January 2004.

What has the Army done?
The Army has combined the Soldier's Creed with the Warrior Ethos in order to establish a set of principles by which every Soldier lives. In a broader sense, the Warrior Ethos is a way of life that applies to both our personal and professional lives. They define who we are and who we aspire to become.

What continued efforts does Army have planned for the future?

The Soldier's Creed is recited at many ceremonies and Soldier's are also issued cards and identification tags with the Soldiers Creed on them. It has become, and will continue to be, a part of our institution and define who we are as individuals and as part of a team.

Why is this important to the Army?
The reason we have the Army as part of the Joint team is to defend our Nation against all enemies—foreign and domestic. Today's Soldier must be capable of conducting operations across the full spectrum of conflict—offense, defense, and stability operations. Soldiers by virtue of what they do are, first and foremost, Warriors. The Soldier's Creed captures the essence of what it is to be a Soldier. Links: The Soldier's Creed, the Warrior Ethos
