REMEMBER THIS CREED!!!!
I am proud to be a United States Coast
I revere that long line of expert seamen who by their
devotion to duty and sacrifice of self have
made it possible for me to be a member of a service
respected, in peace and in war, throughout the world.
I never, by work or deed, will bring reproach upon the fair name of my
service, nor permit others to do so unchallenged.
I will cheerfully and willingly obey all lawful orders.
I will always be on time to relieve, and shall endeavor to do more, rather
than less, than my share.
I will always be at my station, alert and attending to my duties.
I shall, so far as I am able, bring to my seniors solutions, not problems.
I shall live joyously, but always with due regard for the rights and
privileges of others.
I shall endeavor to be a model citizen in the community in which I live.
I shall sell life dearly to an enemy of my country, but give it freely to
rescue those in peril.
With Godís help, I shall endeavor to be one of His noblest Works...
A UNITED STATES COAST GUARDSMAN.
