The U.S. Army has posted their latest "Soldier's Creed" on their site, superimposed over the phrase "Warrior Ethos." The page is headed: "The Way Ahead: Our Army at War. Relevant and Ready."Ranger offers the RAW version:
I am an American soldier.
I represent the citizens of America and myself am a proud citizen.
I serve and protect the Constitution and the citizens of the United States.
I am a professional, and will obey all legal directives of the chain of command.
I am not a warrior -- I am the might and power of America. War is not a creed.
I will not participate in wars of aggression.
I will adhere to the Geneva Conventions.
I will uphold the values of America.
I am an American fighting man.
Comments and additions welcome. We're open to revisions.
