A United States Marine
Written by: Hershey S. Gehris, CCAM
I am A United States Marine.
My tenets are Duty, Honor, and Commitment
in service to God, Country, and Corps.
No matter the cost;
No matter the sacrifice;
Even to the last, full measure;
I will do my duty.
I will honor the traditions of those Marines who have gone before me;
as they have passed to me so will I pass to those who follow
The sword of freedom, the banner of Courage,
the unblemished Honor of the Corps;
For service with out honor is not service.
I will serve with Honor
I will remain faithful at all times;
to my Corp, my Division,
to my Regiment, my Company,
to my Platoon, my Squad,
to my Fire-team, and to these tenets.
I will be Committed
I am a Marine.
I am not an Ex or a Former Marine;
I am or I am not.
There is no middle ground.
A United State Marine.
