Combat Instructor’s Creed
I am a Combat Instructor.
I am a mentor and leader to my students.
I am the example of a combat ready Marine, and will inspire my students to emulate me.
I will mentally and physically train them in infantry tactics, techniques and procedures.
I will train them with vigor, enthusiasm, and make them combat efficient.
I will treat them with firmness, fairness, dignity and respect.
My moral courage, leadership and discipline are unquestionable and my students will never fear me.
I will never forget I am accountable to my Marines to provide them the training necessary to survive in combat.
