The Military Child’s Creed: Celebrating April’s Month of the Military Child

by .
Stripes Korea

I am an American Military Child.

I am a Warrior in my own right, and a member of a Military Family.  

I serve with my Military Parent, who serves the people of the United States.  

I will always place the mission first: to stand beside, behind with my Family.  

I will never accept defeat.

I will never quit.  

I will not leave a fellow military brat hurting.

I will stand beside them.  

I am disciplined, but young.  

Physically and mentally tough but vulnerable.  

I will ask for help when I need it!

I am adaptable and I am resilient.

I stand ready to say “Good-bye”, whisper “I miss you”, and shout “Welcome Home”. 

I am a representative of the American Military Family and the American way of life. 

I am an American Military Child!
