                                        JROTC CREED

 I am an Army JROTC Cadet.
I will always conduct myself to bring credit to my family, country, school and the Corps of Cadets. I am loyal and patriotic.
I am the future of the United States of America.
I do not lie, cheat or steal and will always be accountable for my
actions and deeds. I will always practice good citizenship and patriotism.
I will work hard to improve my mind and strengthen my body.
I will seek the mantle of leadership and stand prepared to uphold the  
Constitution and the American way of life.
May God grant me the strength to always live by this creed.
