Special Ops Creed…

S pecial Ops means I recognize the fact that I have volunteered and have been chosen as one of the elite. Being chosen as a Special Ops operative I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor and high "Espirit De Corps" of my Regiment. Gallantly will I show the world that I'm 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. Above all I will reach my objective honorably, I WILL NEVER CHEAT to obtain a victory!

P ride in my Unit, Team and Myself will always lead my actions. Never shall I fail my comrade's. 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. One Hundred-percent and then some. I will be their eyes and ears, working as one TEAM entity.

E ver vigilant of the dangers to the team should they be flanked I will provide back-up to any & all team members and constantly watch their backs when they are engaged in fire. I will be the eyes in the back of their head as they will be the eyes in the back of mine.

C ourageously and Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. Acting without mercy I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. I will always maintain that I am a member of a team and never an individual.

I will train endlessly… mastering each weapon available to me, for these are the tools of my trade. I will choose my weapons carefully as to compliment my team and enhance the effectiveness of it to complete our objective.

A cknowledging the fact that as a Special Ops elite soldier I will arrive at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, moving further, faster and fight harder than any other soldier. I accept that my country and team members expect me to be in place and do my part to complete the mission successfully. I will never leave my team in jeopardy while maintaining my own safety over the safety of the team.

L oyalty to my superiors, chain of command, and allegiance to the force is engrained in my soul! I will never overstep my authority. My superiors lead and I will follow! I will never question their authority and will never degrade them when speaking to others. If I find I can not follow their orders or respect them I will immediately resign my status in writing as a Special Operations operative.

O ne force, One team, One person… Unbeatable. I will perform the impossible. Be where others cannot be, see where others can not see, act when others can not act. My team is my lifeblood and I am theirs. If I fail, my team is jeopardized… Therefore I will NOT fail!

P recision accuracy is foremost… I will place each shot on target whether it be as a sniper or lead infantry. I will choose every shot carefully identifying each target as the enemy before releasing my lethal payload. I will never fire recklessly as to jeopardize any of my team to "Friendly Fire".

S urrender is not a Special Ops word. I will Never fail to respond to the call of a comrade needing my assistance knowing they will always respond to mine. 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, the prestigious name of Special Ops, or my Squad.
