    This year my thanks goes out to my own Uncle Jack. He was killed trying to land his shot up B-29 in WWII.

    The Creed of a United States Marine

    This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
    My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
    My rifle, without me, is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will.
    My rifle and myself know that what counts in this war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit.
    My rifle is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against damage. I will keep my rifle clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will.
    Before God, I swear this creed. My rifle and myself are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life.
    So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy, but peace!!

    Creed of The United States Coast Guardsman

    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 word 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 God's help, I shall endeavor to be one of His noblest Works...
