Austin Moore: Welcome to “Oklahoma Horizon.” I’m Austin Moore, in for Rob McClendon. Well, our military trains relentlessly to take raw young men and women and craft them into focused, driven soldiers. Nothing quite sums up the effort, the goal and the result of this process, quite like the Soldiers Creed recited for us here by Private Second Class David Perez.

David Perez: The Soldier’s Creed. I am an American soldier. I am a warrior and a member of a team. I serve the people of the United States and live the Army values. I will always place the mission first. I will never accept defeat. I will never quit. I will never leave a fallen comrade. I am disciplined and physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills. I will always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself. I am an expert, and I am a professional. I stand ready to deploy, engage and destroy the enemies of the United States of America in close combat. I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life. I am an American soldier.
