I volunteered as a paratrooper, fully realizing the hazards of my chosen service, and by my actions will always uphold the prestige, honor and high "Esprit de Corps" of the only volunteer branch of the Army.
I realize that a parachutist is not merely a soldier who arrives by parachute to fight but is an elite shock-trooper and that his country expects him to march farther and faster than any other soldier.
I shall never fail my comrades, shirking my duty or training, but will always keep myself mentally and physically fit and will shoulder my full share of the task, no matter what ever it may be.
I shall show other soldiers by my military courtesy to superior officers and non-commissioned officers, by neatness of dress, by my care of my own weapon and equipment that I am a well trained soldier.
I shall endeavor always by my soldierly appearance, military bearing and behavior, to reflect the high standards of training and morale of parachute troops.
I shall respect the abilities of my enemies. I will fight fairly and with all my might. Surrender is not in my creed.
I shall display a higher degree of initiative than is required of other troops and will fight on to my objectives and complete the mission, though I be the lone survivor.
