AIRBORNE
All The Way
AIRBORNE CREED

I am an AIRBORNE TROOPER!  A PARATROOPER!

I jump by parachute from any plane in flight. I volunteered to do it, knowing well the hazards of
my choice.

I serve in a mighty Airborne Force, famed for deeds in war, renowned for readiness in peace. It
is my pledge to uphold its honor and prestige in all I am, in all I do.

I am an elite trooper, a sky trooper, a shock trooper, a spearhead trooper. I blaze the way to
far-flung goals, behind, before, above the foe's front line.

I know that I may have to fight without support for days on end. Therefore, I keep mind and
body always fit to do my part in any Airborne task. I am self-reliant and unafraid. I shoot true,
and march fast and far. I fight hard and excel in every art and artifice of war.

I never fail a fellow trooper. I cherish as a sacred trust the lives of men with whom I serve.
Leaders have my fullest loyalty, and those I lead never find me lacking.

I have pride in the Airborne! I never let it down!

In peace, I do not shrink the dullest of duty not protest the toughest training. My weapons and
equipment are always combat ready. I am neat of dress, military in courtesy, proper in conduct
and behavior.

In battle, I fear no foe's ability, nor under-estimate his prowess, power and guile. I fight him with
all my might and skills, ever alert to evade capture or escape a trap. I never surrender, though I be
the last.

My goal in peace or war is to succeed in any mission of the day, or die, if needs be, in the try.

I belong to a proud and glorious team, the Airborne, the Army, my Country. I am its chosen pride
to fight where others may not go, to serve them well until the final victory.

I am the trooper of the sky! I am my Nation's best! In peace and war I never fail. Anywhere,
anytime, in anything,
I AM AIRBORNE!
