Riflemans creed.

  •   This is my rifle.  
  •  There are many like it, but this one is mine.  It is my life.  
  •  I must master it as I must master my life.   
  • Without me my rifle is useless.  
  •  Without my rifle, I am useless.        
  •  I must fire my rifle true.  
  •  I must shoot straighter than the enemy who is trying to kill me.  
  •  I must shoot him before he shoots me.  I will.   
  • My rifle and I know that what counts in war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, or the smoke we make.   
  • We know that it is the hits that count.   
  • We will hit.
  • My rifle is human, even as I am human, because it is my life.  Thus, I will learn it as a brother.  
  •  I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel.  
  •  I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready.   
  • We will become part of each other.
  • Before God I swear this creed.  
  •  My rifle and I 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.
  • AMEN
