Nowata VFW Post #2745

            A 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 military 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, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.
I 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.


The Nowata VFW have some great activities and news for May, 2009. Everyone knows that freedom is not free and the members of the VFW have gone to war for our freedom. We all owe them a debt of gratitude and support.
