I am the parent of an American soldier.
I will support, respect and honor the protectors of this great Nation, this team we call Army.
I seek to serve by word and deed not only my soldier but all soldiers.
I will always treat a soldier respectfully, always defending their service with pride.
I will never accept disrespect or dishonor of my soldier or any soldier from anyone.
I will never abandon a soldier, injured or otherwise and I will always fight for their right to be treated fairly and honorably, even by those with whom they serve.
I will privately bear the pain of loss and separation from my soldier, always striving to be uplifting and positive in their presence for their sake.
I will always acknowledge an Army soldier in public or private, commending and praising them for their service to us.
I will never let them forget that we are proud of them nor of the deep appreciation we have for their sacrifice.
I will stand by my soldier and those who serve with them, confronting anyone seeking to harm, dishonor or deny them basic human rights. I am the mother or father of my child, I am an Army parent.
Be Safe - Be Good - Be Strong
