The NCO Creed

Post by Silentman on Tue Jan 22, 2008 2:16 pm


No one is more professional than
I. I am a Noncommissioned Officer, a leader of soldiers. As a Noncommissioned
Officer, I realize that I am a member of a time honored corps, which is known
as "The Backbone of the Army". I am proud of the Corps of
Noncommissioned Officers and will at all times conduct myself so as to bring
credit upon the Corps, the Military Service and my country regardless of the
situation in which I find myself. I will not use my grade or position to attain
pleasure, profit, or personal safety.

Competence is my watchword. My
two basic responsibilities will always be uppermost in my mind --
accomplishment of my mission and the welfare of my soldiers. I will strive to
remain tactically and technically proficient. I am aware of my role as a
Noncommissioned Officer. I will fulfill my responsibilities inherent in that
role. All soldiers are entitled to outstanding leadership; I will provide that
leadership. I know my soldiers and I will always place their needs above my
own. I will communicate consistently with my soldiers and never leave them
uninformed. I will be fair and impartial when recommending both rewards and

Officers of my unit will have
maximum time to accomplish their duties; they will not have to accomplish mine.
I will earn their respect and confidence as well as that of my soldiers. I will
be loyal to those with whom I serve; seniors, peers, and subordinates alike. I
will exercise initiative by taking appropriate action in the absence of orders.
I will not compromise my integrity, nor my moral courage. I will not forget,
nor will I allow my comrades to forget that we are professionals,
Noncommissioned Officers, leaders!

Thank You and Good Hunting,
