First paragraph

No one is more professional than I, I am a non commissioned officer, a leader of soldiers. As a non commissioned officer I realize that I am a member of a time honored corps, which is known as the backbone of the army. I am proud of the corp of non commissioned officers and will at all times conduct myself so as to bring credit upon the corp, the military service, and my country, regardless of the situation in which I find myself. I will not use my grade or position to attain pleasure, profit, or personal safety.


Second paragraph

Competence is my watchword. My two basic responsibilities will always be uppermost in my mind, accomplishment of my mission and the welfare of my soldiers. I will strive to remain technically and tactically proficient. I am aware of role as a non commissioned officer. I will fulfill my responsibilities inherent in that role. All soldiers are entitled to outstanding leadership, I will provide that leadership. I know my soldiers and I will always place their needs above my own. I will communicate consistently with my soldiers and never leave them uninformed. I will be fair and impartial when recommending both rewards and punishment.
