2 Cadet Creed I am an ARMY Cadet. Soon I will take an oath and become an Army Officer committed to DEFENDING the values which make this Nation great. HONOR is my touchstone. I understand MISSION first and PEOPLE always. I am the PAST, the spirit of those WARRIORS who have made the final sacrifice. I am the PRESENT, the scholar and apprentice soldier enhancing my skills in the science of warfare and the art of leadership. But above all I am FUTURE, the future WARRIOR LEADER of the United States Army. May God give me the compassion and judgment to lead and the gallantry in battle to WIN. I WILL DO MY DUTY.
