The professional soldier is the soldier that puts God, Country, and his fellow soldier
before Himself. The soldier that shows up for duty with the attitude of not what do I have to do
for my Army, but what can I do for my Army. The professional soldier adapts and overcomes
situations that would brake the average man down. The professional soldier is mentally and
physically a weapon to be used against enemies of the United States of America.
I am a professional Soldier. A dedicated warrior on the battlefield and home front.
An American who volunteered his life and family’s time for country. An American that shows
his courage, strength and loyalty both in uniform with his fellow soldiers, and out of uniform
in the civilian world. An American that instills pride and love of country in his wife, children,
and family. An American soldier that understands his duty for country may cost him his life,
but that life is given in defense of 6,000,000,000,000 other Americans, and the belief in
Democracy and the American way of life.
I follow a long line of soldiers, many of whom are alive today, and many more that are
not, but alive in spirit and memory. I follow a line of soldiers that when called to defend their
country, did so with honor and strength. I will continue to follow this long line of professional
soldier that stretches back over 236 years. I will also ensure by my presence, and example the
next generation of American Soldier.
I am an American Soldier, a warrior and a member of a team. A team with the most
professional players, coaches, staff family and friends. A team that is and will continue to be
The most feared and respected military on the planet. A military that others call to for help, but
our enemies fear and loath.
I AM AN AMERICAN SOLDIER
