1.        I will always behave in a manner that brings credit to the fleet, my ship, and myself.


 2.        I will always praise in public and critique in private.


 3.        I will show courtesy to my subordinates, fellow officers, and superior officers at all times.


 4.        I will never assume, but always verify.


 5.        I will be resolute in the performance of my duty and the execution of Fleet policy and regulation.


 6.        I will always defuse confrontations, not cause them.


 7.        I will listen to both sides of a dispute and act upon fact, not innuendo.


 8.        I will strive for impartiality and fairness in judgment and disqualify myself from decisions

            where my judgment may be compromised.


 9.        I will be the first to praise and the last to criticize.


10.       I will always strive to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
