Ranger Creed

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,


or air,

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,

physically strong

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!
