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.

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.

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.

Army Song
First to fight for the right,
and to build the nation’s might,
And THE ARMY GOES ROLLING ALONG.
Proud of all we have done,
Fighting ’till the battle’s won,
And THE ARMY GOES ROLLING ALONG.
Then it’s Hi! Hi! Hey!
The Army’s on its way.
Count off the cadence loud and strong!
For where’er we go,
You will always know that
THE ARMY GOES ROLLING ALONG
