Realizing it is my choice and my choice
alone to be a Reconnaissance Marine, I accept all challenges
involved with this profession. Forever shall I strive to maintain
the tremendous reputation of those who went before me.
Exceeding beyond the limitations set down by others shall be my
goal. Sacrificing personal comforts and dedicating myself to the
completion of the reconnaissance mission shall be my life.
Physical fitness, mental attitude, and high ethics -- The title
of Recon Marine is my honor.
Conquering all obstacles, both large and small, I shall never
quit. To quit, to surrender, to give up is to fail. To be a Recon
Marine is to surpass failure; To overcome, to adapt and to do
whatever it takes to complete the mission.
On the battlefield, as in all areas of life, I shall stand tall
above the competition. Through professional pride, integrity, and
teamwork, I shall be the example for all Marines to emulate.
Never shall I forget the principles I accepted to become a Recon
Marine. Honor, Perseverance, Spirit and Heart.
A Recon Marine can speak without saying a word and achieve what
others can only imagine.
