Recognizing that I volunteered as a Ranger,
fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession,
I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige,
and high esprit de corps of the Rangers.
Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite Soldier
who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land,
I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move further,
and fight harder than any other Soldier.
Never shall I fail my comrades.
I will always keep myself mentally alert,
and morally straight
and I will shoulder more than my share of the task
whatever it may be,
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 survivor.
Rangers lead the way!
