Promotion Ceremonies are very big deals and depending on the branch it is a right of passage. During promotion ceremonies, the ranking enlisted person in the organization (normally) reads he creed or charge to the receiving party. Below, is the ultimate creed for the enlisted force, the Chief Master Sergeant's Creed.
Chief Master Sergeants are individually to be regarded as people:
Who cannot be
Whose word is their bond
Who put character above wealth
Who possess opinions and a will
Who are larger than their vocations
Who will not lose their individuality in a crowd
Who do not hesitate to take chances
Who will be as honest in small things as in great ones
Who will make no compromise with wrong
Whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires and interests
Who are true to their friends through good report and evil report, in adversity as well as prosperity
Who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning, and hard-headedness are the best qualities for winning success
Who are not ashamed or afraid to stand for the truth when it is unpopular, who can say "no" with emphasis, although all the world is saying "yes"
