Meet the real “Iron Mike” this Memorial Day

The Real "Iron Mike"

Infantry "Follow Me" statue at Ft. Benning, GA "Iron Mike"

I am the Infantry.
I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace.
I am the heart of the fight- wherever, whenever.
I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies.
I am the Queen of Battle.

I am what my country expects me to be- the best trained soldier in the world.
In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win.
Never will I fail my country’s trust.

Always I fight on- through the foe, to the objective, to triumph over all.
If necessary, I fight to my death.
By my steadfast courage, I have won 200 years of freedom.

I yield not- to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, for I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight.

I forsake not- my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty.
I am relentless.
I am always there, now and forever.



Posted in honor of my fallen brother Infantrymen.
And for those who Charlie Mike today.
