    Creed of the
    United States Coast Guardsman

    (written by VADM Harry G. Hamlet, USCG)

    I am proud to be a United States Coast Guardsman.

    I revere that long line of expert seamen who by their devotion to duty and sacrifice of self have made it possible for me to be a member of a service honored and respected, in peace and in war, throughout the world.

    I never, by work or deed, will bring reproach upon the fair name of my service, nor permit others to do so unchallenged.

    I will cheerfully and willingly obey all lawful orders.

    I will always be on time to relieve, and shall endeavor to do more, rather than less, than my share.

    I will always be at my station, alert and attending to my duties.

    I shall, so far as I am able, bring to my seniors solutions, not problems.

    I shall live joyously, but always with due regard for the rights and privileges of others.

    I shall endeavor to be a model citizen in the community in which I live.

    I shall sell life dearly to an enemy of my country, but give it freely to rescue those in peril.

    With Godís help, I shall endeavor to be one of His noblest Works...
