The Veteran's Creed
1. I am an American Veteran 2. I proudly served my country 3. I live the values I learned in the military 4. I continue to serve my community, my country and my fellow veterans 5. I maintain my physical and mental discipline 6. I continue to lead and improve 7. I make a difference 8. I honor and remember my fallen comrades
The Creed is the result of extensive discussions and consultations among the group that began last fall at Georgetown University. It is meant to inspire veterans to continue to serve and lead in their communities and our country, and to continue to make a difference in our world.
"I believe the Veteran's Creed could remind veterans of what they miss about their service and encourage them to continue to make a difference in their communities and across our country," said retired Gen. George W. Casey, Jr., former Army Chief of Staff. "We need their talents."
Each element of the Creed is rooted in shared military tenets, the missions of participating veterans and military service organizations, and in the altruistic ethos of veterans themselves. It is also meant to remind Americans that the principles and values veterans learned in the military- integrity, leadership, teamwork, selfless service - can greatly benefit our country.
"The Creed will help prepare veterans for their productive civilian lives," said Dr. Joel Kupersmith, Director of Veterans' Initiatives at Georgetown University.
It is an expression of the values and traits each member of the military learns through their service and sacrifice for their country and which are carried forward in service to the communities in which they live and work after leaving the military.
The participating group of Veterans Service Organizations includes AMVETS, DAV (Disabled American Veterans), HillVets, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, Military Order of the Purple Heart, Paralyzed Veterans of America, ROA (Reserve Officers Association), Student Veterans of America, Team Rubicon Global, Veterans of Foreign Wars and Wounded Warrior Project.
