I am an American Special Forces soldier. A
professional! I will do all that my nation requires of me.
I am a volunteer, knowing well the
hazards of my profession.
I serve with the memory of those who have
gone before me: Roger's Rangers, Francis Marion, Mosby's
Rangers, the first Special Service Forces and Ranger Battalions
of World War II, The Airborne Ranger Companies of Korea. I
pledge to uphold the honor and integrity of all I am - in all I
I am a professional soldier. I will teach
and fight wherever my nation requires. I will strive always, to
excel in every art and artifice of war.
I know that I will be called upon to
perform tasks in isolation, far from familiar faces and voices,
with the help and guidance of my God.
I will keep my mind and body clean, alert
and strong, for this is my debt to those who depend upon me.
I will not fail those with whom I serve.
I will not bring shame upon myself or the forces.
I will maintain myself, my arms, and my
equipment in an immaculate state as befits a Special Forces
I will never surrender though I be the
last. If I am taken, I pray that I may have the strength to
spit upon my enemy.
My goal is to succeed in any mission - and
live to succeed again.
I am a member of my nation's chosen
soldiery. God grant that I may not be found wanting, that I will
not fail this sacred trust.
