The Infantry Creed

I am the Infantry--Queen of Battle! For six centuries I have kept our Nation safe, purchasing freedom with my blood. To tyrants, I am the day of reckoning; to the suppressed, the hope for the future. Where the fighting is thick, there am I...

I am the Infantry! FOLLOW ME! I was there from the beginning, meeting the enemy face to face, will to will. I have seen nations born, divided, and reunited. I have toppled dictators and defended the weak. I have protected brave colonists from the plains to the stars. I have patrolled jungles, beaches, paddies, deserts, and skies in the bitter test that belongs to the Infantry. I have answered humanity’s call, I have proclaimed freedom, I have protected the innocent.

I am the Infantry! FOLLOW ME!

Throughout the Federation, I stand... ever forward. Duty called, I answered. My bayonet... on the wings of power... keeps the peace. And despots, falsely garbed in freedom’s mantle, falter... hide. My ally in the paddies and the forest... I teach, I aid, I lead.

I am the Infantry! FOLLOW ME!

Where brave men fight... there fight I. In freedom’s cause... I live, I die. From Concord Bridge to Heartbreak Ridge, from Sectis to Setlik... the Queen of Battle! Always ready... then, now, and forever.

I am the Infantry! FOLLOW ME!
