NCO Creed (Non-commissioned Officer’s Creed)
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
Corps of non commissioned officers and will at all times conduct myself so as to
bring credit upon the Corps, 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.
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
my 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
Officers of my unit will have maximum time to accomplish their duties; they will
not have to accomplish mine. I will earn their respect and confidence as well as
that of my Soldiers. I will be loyal to those with whom I serve; seniors, peers, and
subordinates alike. I will exercise initiative by taking appropriate action in the
absence of orders. I will not compromise my integrity, nor my moral courage. I
will not forget, nor will I allow my comrades to forget that we are professionals,
non commissioned officers, leaders!
