The history of the Corps is rife with tales of the Marine NCO. Today's
Corporals and Sergeants carry on one of the strongest and longest
unbroken traditions of duty, honor, and commitment within our Corps.
I am an NCO dedicated to training new Marines and influencing the old.
I am forever conscious of each Marine under my charge, and by example
will inspire him to the highest standards possible. I will strive
to be patient, understanding, just, and firm. I will commend the
deserving and encourage the wayward.
I will never forget that I am responsible to my Commanding Officer for
the morale, discipline, and efficiency of my men and their performance
will reflect an image of me.
