      Grant me the strength to do my duties and serve my country with honor please    watch over me and remind me that even in war, may I keep clearly before me the defense of all human rights, especially the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

            Grant me the courage to face America’s enemies with determination valor.
