I WILL ALWAYS PLACE THEIR NEEDS ABOVE MY OWN AND WILL COMMUNICATE WITH MY SUPERVISORS AND MY PEOPLE AND NEVER LEAVE THEM UNINFORMED.

I WILL EXERT EVERY EFFORT AND RISK ANY RIDICULE TO SUCCESSFULLY ACCOMPLISH MY ASSIGNED DUTIES, I WILL NOT LOOK AT A PERSON AND SEE ANY RACE, COLOR, RELIGION, SEX, AGE, OR NATIONAL ORIGIN, FOR I WILL SEE ONLY THE PERSON; NOR WILL I EVER SHOW PREJUDICE OR BIAS.
