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. Their
performance will reflect an image of me.
