You've gotten down to the very essence of what the creed not only says, but what it is all about.
All the way…

That Creed was and still is very important to me. There have been many times in my life both civilian and military that I have had to recite that in my head over and over to get through something whether it was a combat mission, a hard training event or just a bad day. I did so as recently as this past weekend. My Competition team and I participated in a 15K road race, but we wore cammo pants, boots and 35LB packs. One of my guys rolled his ankle and began to fall back. I pushed hard to get to the finish line, dropped my pack and went back almost one mile to find him and carry his pack in as he struggled beside me. As tired as i was and as much as I wanted to drink the gatorade being handed out at the finish line I kept reciting "I will never leave a fallen comrade." Small example but one that I may not have done without having that intestinal fortitude engrained in me by the leadership I was taught at the great U.S. Army's Ranger School. Class 07-02

Being Air Force the Ranger Creed is held up as an example, in the nature of work which I did we had a shorter creed in was on our wall or wherever we went is simply stated this:
"Failure is not an option"

A creed lends focus, perseverance & values under arduous circumstances. Many #veterans need these in post-service life. » is.gd/usaveteran «

The Ranger Creed will always have such an incredible impact on the soldiers who live by them. I hope I don’t offend any of my brothers but to me, it is like some verses out of the book of Psalms, 119:9 how can a young man keep his way pure…. by meditating on Your Word…. then it say, I’ve hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against Thee. To Me the Creed is Holy, Sacred and Inspires men to do great things.
