I always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself. I am an expert and I am a professional.I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy, the enemies of the United States of America in close combat. I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life. I am an American Soldier.
WHAT THE CREED IS ABOUT The U.S. Soldiers Creed is a standard that all United States Army personnel are encouraged to live by. All U.S. Army enlisted personnel are taught theSoldiers Creed during basic training, and recite the creed in public ceremonies at the conclusion of training. Both The Soldiers Creed and theNoncommissioned officers creed is required knowledge at enlisted promotion boards to compete for the rank of Sergeant and above, as well as Soldier of the Month boards. It is also common practice to recite the Soldiers Creed at the graduation ceremony from Army ROTC. Unlike the United States Uniformed Services Oath of Office or the Oath of enlistment, the Soldiers Creed can be affirmed by both Army officers and Soldiers.
EMOTIONAL RESPONSEThe soldier truly wants to serve his county and do what he is trained to, while keeping his comrades safe.
CHARACTERSWhen I get out of school, I will attempt to join the military and say this creed, by the time I am not, I will know it by heart.The Character of this story is the soldier that is saying this creed, offering his heart and soul to his nation.
POINT OF VIEW This Creed is from the point of view of a soldier in the army. “I am an American Soldier.” It states that in the creed.To the character by saying this creed is he preparing to not only protect his country, but to aid comrades in distress.
CULTURAL CHARACTERISTICSThe culture of an American soldier is a culture of honor, they defend their country, sometimes even by giving the ultimate sacrifice, their life.The entire Creed is an example of a soldiers culture, and what he’ll do to protect his country. It relates to me because I want to be a soldier after I get out of school.
COMPARE AND CONTRAST This compared to the book “SOLDIERS”. Both characters are soldiers.Soldiers is about a soldier from WWII, this relates to the creed by being aboutsoldiers and how they feel. In soldiers, the main character also saves a german, but the german’s comrades shoot and kill him. The Creed only says to save your comrades, not the enemies.
