Composed by BG James E. Mace, USA, Ret., Class of 1963, in 1998. General Mace is a former Commandant of the Corps of Cadets.
I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of The Citadel and the South Carolina Corps of Cadets.
Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically tough, and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.
Gallantly will I show the world that I am a well-trained cadet. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress, and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.
And under no circumstances will I ever bring discredit to The Citadel and the South Carolina Corps of Cadets.
