HONOR GUARDSMAN’S CREED
I am an Honor Guardsman.
I will proudly stand beside my shipmates
Despite the discomforting elements.
I will maintain poise on and off the parade field.
I will exceed the standards and
Accept nothing less than perfection.
I will honor all Coast
Guard men and women
Both living and dead.
I will respect the Honor Guard mission
And my seniors.
I will devote my maximum effort to this sacred duty.
By wearing this rope
I have accepted a commitment to excellence
As a way of life.
