Starting my Blog off to a strong start, I’m paraphrasing “The Soldier’s Creed” plaque that is on my workroom wall, and was featured in the Memorial Presentation at my father’s funeral.
I am the daughter of an American Soldier,
I am a warrior and a member of a team,
I serve the people of the United States,
And live the Army values.
I will always place the mission first.
I will never accept defeat.
I will never quit.
I will never leave a fallen comrade.
I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough.
Trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.
I always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself.
I am an expert and I am a professional.
I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy the enemies of
The United States of America in close combat.
I am a guardian of Freedom and the American way of life.
I am the Daughter of an American Soldier.
I am the Wife of an American Soldier.
I am the Mother of an American Soldier.
I am the Grandmother of an American Soldier.
I am a Chaplain and a Patriot, who serves God, Country, U.S. Service Members, Veterans & Families, everywhere --- with messages of Hope, Courage, and Faith.
