Veterans’ Organizations Establish Veteran’s Creed

On Thursday, June 14, 2018 (Flag Day), eleven major veterans’ organizations announced the development and adoption of a Veteran’s Creed.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.

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 eight-point Veteran’s Creed is:

  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

Along with the VFW, other participating veterans’ groups include AMVETS, Disabled American Veterans, HillVets, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, Military Order of the Purple Heart, Paralyzed Veterans of America,Reserve Officers Association,Student Veterans of America, Team Rubicon Global and Wounded Warrior Project.
