“These recruits are entrusted to my care.
I will train them to the best of my ability.
I will develop them into smartly disciplined,
physically fit, basically trained Marines,
thoroughly indoctrinated in love of Corps and country.
I will demand of them, and demonstrate by my own example,
the highest standards of personal conduct,
morality and professional skill”
