The Warrior Ethos portion of the United States Army Soldier’s Creed –
I will always place the mission first.
I will never accept defeat.
I will never quit.
I will never leave a fallen comrade.
We can disagree about a lot concerning the campaign and strategic decisions in Iraq, including the current one to leave completely – but God bless all of you that were a part of granting Iraqi citizens the opportunity to be free.
To all the American fighting men and women that killed thousands of would-be terrorists and did it with dignity and respect for the innocents caught in that war – a giant Hooah! Well done.
To Harry Reid, to (then Senator) Barack Obama, to the late Ted Kennedy, and all of the weasels who talked down our troops and ridiculed our mission for political or other gain – WE DID IT, we did it without you, we did it with honor, and we have everything to be proud of.
Lastly, to the friends, family, and comrades of the fallen, know that they did not sacrifice in vain. We all hold their honor and example in our hearts.
