  4. 4. CADETS’ PHILOSOPHY <ul><li>Stand and deliver. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t quit. </li></ul><ul><li>Perfect practice makes perfect. </li></ul><ul><li>Respect is not given but earned. </li></ul><ul><li>Attitude is a small thing but it makes a difference. </li></ul><ul><li>He, who lives without discipline, dies without dignity. </li></ul>
  5. 5. 5 POINTS OF MILITARY DISCIPLINE <ul><li>Obey first before you complain. </li></ul><ul><li>The fault of one is the fault of all. </li></ul><ul><li>My “buddy” is my body. </li></ul><ul><li>If it is not for the good of all, I will not sacrifice myself. </li></ul><ul><li>I must be stable even under pressure. </li></ul>

  7. 7. LOYALTY PLEDGE <ul><li>If you work for a man in heaven’s name, work for him, speak well of him and stand by the institution he represents. Remember, an ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness. If you must growl or externally find fault, resign your position and when you are on the outside, damn to your heart’s content.

  11. 11. The Bible commands us. <ul><li>“ As a good soldier of Christ Jesus you must endure your share of suffering. Soldiers on duty don’t work at outside jobs. They try only to please their commanding officer.” </li></ul><ul><li>2 Timothy 2: 3 – 4, </li></ul>
