Air Force NCO Creed
No one is more professional than I. I am a noncommissioned officer, a leader of people. I am proud of the noncommissioned officer corps and will at all times conduct myself so as to bring credit upon it. I will not use my grade or position to attain profit or safety.

Competence is my watchword, I will strive to maintain tactically and technically proficient. I will always be aware of my role as a noncommissioned officer; I will fulfill my responsibilities and display professionalism at all times. I will strive to know my subordinates and use their skills to the maximum degree possible. I will always place their needs above my own and will communicate with my supervisors and my people and never leave them uninformed.

I will exert every effort and risk any ridicule to successfully accomplish my assigned duties, I will not look at a person and see any race, color, religion, sex, age, or national origin, for I will see only the person; nor will I ever show prejudice or bias. I will lead by example and will resort to disciplinary action only when necessary. I will carry out orders to the best of my abilities and will always obey the decisions of my superiors.

I will give all officers my maximum support to ensure mission accomplishment. I will earn their respect, obey their orders, and establish a high degree if integrity with them. I will exercise initiative in the absence of orders and will make decisive and accurate decisions. I will not compromise my integrity nor my moral courage.

i will not forget that i am a professional, I am a leader -- I am a non-commissioned officer.
